Image//Book Works//Phrases about yellow.

A small insight into phrases that are about, or use the colour yellow as subject matter- potential cultural references that I could also introduce into my design and/or text-based infographics.


  • Yellowbellied: a cowardly manner
  • Yellow fever: a disease involving high fever and jaundice that is common in the tropics
  • Yellow jack: a flag flown on a vessel to show that it is under quarantine
  • Yellowdog contract: a contract which denies a person the right to join a worker's union
  • Yellow journalism: newspaper articles thought to be sensationalized in order to sell more papers [see article: "The Yellow Journalism Wars"]
