If you’re the kind of person who notices little things and likes to know why are things a certain way – this might be a neat gem. The Color+Design blog has compiled a list (actually, now two) of some of the trivia behind why specific colors are attributed to a certain item or notion: why is the envy monster green? Why is gay/lesbianism associated with purple? Why does the leader of the Tour de France wear a yellow jersey (and why does the Italian one wear pink)? Why is the US dollar the greenback?

If these questions-and-answers fascinate you (as they are for me), be glad that there are over 20 of them right here!
