Gult är fult?/yellow ugliness?

In Swedish “ugly” rhymes on “yellow”. It’s not at all the same in English.
But we say “yellow is ugly” in Swedish, as a phrase.

I don’t know where we got the idea from. Yellow is a beautiful color.

Here’s a poor yellow flower we often say we dislike, but I think it deserves to be as beautiful as any other flower. Just look at it!

Varför har vi fått för oss att “gult är fult”? Varför har vi fått för oss att maskrosor är ogräs?

Titta på denna vackra lilla blomvarelse och försök se något annat än ogräset och det “fula gula”.


Jag ser en vacker liten blomma med massor av detaljer, hur kan naturen åstadkomma så magiska ting?

  1. in Manipuri language, the word for this hue of yellow literally refers directly to the flower of mustard. it is not considered ugly but the colour blue on the other hand has interesting implications 🙂
