The idiom “yellow-streak” in the western people means that a person may not be a coward, but he/she can easily turn into a coward. Such people are easily frightened if something challenges them in life. Another Idiom that is associated with yellow color is the “yellow-dog” (Galatiltyte 37). The idiom has existed in western culture to refer to a shameful person who fears being in front of other people because of cowardice. In general, the yellow color represents unhappiness, and it may not be a good color to use in English countries. This kind of belief is a cultural prejudice.

The negative representation of yellow color has also appeared in Stetson’s “The yellow wall-paper.” In western culture, the yellow color appears in most negative idioms, and therefore no one would like to be associated with it.
