a compromise between Taiwan and China would be a mix of green and red, which would look like shit, or yellow if you are doing additive mixing.[/quote]
But what abstract ideas that the colour Blue symbolizes, or at least to the people who assign and use this colour, is something of China isn’t it?
If what blue represents isn’t China, then what ideas, philosophy and concepts does the colour blue represent?[/quote]
When I look at that color, I’m reminded of the color of Kending beaches on a clear sky day. It’s the color of the translucent ocean, at the same time it’s the color of the forests and land. It combines the notion of the island with the ocean oriented outlook.
From a design perspective, it gets us out of that green/blue design loop. You can say it’s green or blue, greenish blue or blueish green. I like that aspect of it.
