It is a primary color in subtractive color, used in color printing, along with cyan, magenta, and black.

According to surveys in Europe and the United States, yellow is the color people most often associate with amusement, optimism, gentleness, and spontaneity, but also with duplicity, envy, jealousy, avarice, and, in the U.S., with cowardice. It plays an important role in Asian culture, particularly in China, where it is seen as the color of happiness, glory, wisdom, harmony and culture.<ref>Eva Heller (2000), Psychologie de la couleur - effets et symboliques, pp. 69–86.</ref>
