Correspondences


If you look on the net, correspondences for colours generally say something like green for money and yellow for communications.

Green is for money because in The States their money is printed in green, while in Britain money is printed in different colours depending on the denomination. For example, a £50 note is red. So in Britain we’re better off using gold or silver for money, while in The States they would be fine using green, because their culture is used to green representing money.

Yellow is for communications because on the Continent the postal and telephone services tend to have yellow boxes, while in Britain our telephone and postal services are red. So it would be better if we Brits were to use red for communications and those on the Continent yellow.

As usual, your mileage may vary. Whatever you decide on as a correspondence, I would make sure you understand and most importantly believe in why you use it.
