London: Blue! Yes that’s the word and for the world that is the colour.Blue was revealed to be the world’s favourite colour in a series of surveys covering 10 countries across four continents.The polls took place in the UK, Germany, USA, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia – in all of them, blue convincingly came out on top.
33 per cent of Britons surveyed said it was their favourite colour, the highest level out of all countries listed. Even in Indonesia, where it had the fewest fans, at 23 per cent, it came top by a wide margin. The colour’s all-encompassing popularity is interesting, considering that some countries on the list see different colours as lucky, or auspicious.
