The Color Yellow … is it Amarillo?

March 5, 2008
They say our fair City of Amarillo was named for the bright yellow wildflowers of spring. Amarillo is the Spanish word for the color yellow. So in today’s blog I thought I would discuss how well the city matches its name.
Yellow is the brightest color in the color spectrum and I feel the City of Amarillo is the brightest and fairest of all the cities in Texas.
When used in reference to nature the color yellow usually depicts sunshine and is also used to depict warmth. Well Amarillo certainly matches that description with over 270 days of sun yearly making it easy to enjoy our many parks and natural attractions like the Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the United States. We are also great rodeo enthusiasts here in Amarillo and there is nothing like a good rodeo in the bright warm sunshine.
The color yellow is also used to represent, happiness, joy and cheerfulness. All these words are synonyms for each other. Here again this description matches up pretty well. Another word for happiness is contentment and Amarillo residents are known to be very friendly with a great spirit and attitude. Can’t be that and grumpy and unhappy, so I would say that is a match.  Joy can also be interpreted as happiness or enjoyment and our citizens do enjoy the advantages of living in the great state of Texas and in my opinion its greatest city. Cheerfulness, well that is pretty evident on the faces of our citizens when they greet you with a big “Howdy” and a cheerful smile.
The color yellow is said to increase self-esteem and contributes to our overall well-being. Well, here is another match for the City of Amarillo. We have a strong economy, which definitely makes me feel better when I know people have the means to invest in themselves when they purchase Amarillo real estate. There is nothing like homeownership to give a boost to your self-esteem.
Here are some other tidbits about the color (not compared to the City of Amarillo).
  • Yellow is the most attention getting color in the color spectrum as it is the brightest and most visible color therefore it is often used to draw attention to something or to warn of hazards. Yellow depending on the shade can indicate purity. Yellow is Sunday’s color. It is often used to depict the heavenly bodies like the sun and stars. Yellow is also used as to show a halo around a person’s head in pictures and stained glass windows.
  • Yellow is the color of creativity and intellectual energy. It is the color of the mind which brings clarity to thought, clear decisions and quick reflexes. Yellow is the color used to symbolizes wisdom and is also said to be the color preference of people with high a IQ.
  • Some say to use yellow note pads when you are doing something creative such as writing. Hmm maybe I should change my background to yellow when writing a blog.
Use the color yellow in your life when you want to:
  • Make decisions and are evaluating the pros and cons.
  • Your life has too much stress and you are feeling burned our or are anxious
  • When you want to sharpen your memory skills and concentration
  • When you want to liven things up a bit, the weather is dreary or if you are depressed.
  • When you want to express yourself wear a bit of yellow jewelry or a yellow flower in your hair.
Remember that bright little happy face that makes us feel so good, he is bright yellow with a great big smile. So put on your happy face and a splash of yellow in your life.
