Shades of yellow are not used prominently in most parts of the world, but not so in Vietnam,
here, yellow symbolizes wealth, prosperity, royalty and change.
Which is why regal shades of this color can be found on so many of the official buildings and parks of Hanoi.
Red symbolizes happiness, love, luck and celebration.
Well, I know I loved studying the layers of these colors that are so important to this culture, seeing this brought me a great deal of contented happiness.
If walls could talk I am sure this one would have many stories as to what they’d seen as their colors changed over the years.
