Purple

Traditionally, the complementary color of yellow is purple; the two colors are opposite each other on the color wheel long used by painters.
The complementary color of purple is yellow.

RGB color model

RGBred, green, and blueRGBC-IR
In the RGB color model, used to create colors on television and computer screens, yellow is a secondary color made by combining red and green at equal intensity.
When one of the components has the strongest intensity, the color is a hue near this primary color (reddish, greenish or bluish), and when two components have the same strongest intensity, then the color is a hue of a secondary color (a shade of cyan, magenta or yellow).

Cyan

light cyanblue (cyan)blue-green
In color printing, yellow is one of the three colors of ink, along with magenta and cyan, which, along with black, can be overlaid in the right combination, along with black, to print any full color image.
In the subtractive color system, or CMYK (subtractive), which can be overlaid to produce all colors in paint and color printing, cyan is one of the primary colors, along with magenta, yellow, and black.

CMYK color model

(See the CMYK color model).
CMYK refers to the four inks used in some color printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key.

Magenta

It is one of the four colors of ink used in color printing by an inkjet printer, along with yellow, black, and cyan, to make all the other colors.

Color wheel

colour wheelcolor circlecolour circle
Because of the characteristics of paint pigments and use of different color wheels, painters traditionally regard the complement of yellow as the color indigo or blue-violet.
As an illustrative model, artists typically use red, yellow, and blue primaries (RYB color model) arranged at three equally spaced points around their color wheel.

Visible spectrum

Yellow is the color between orange and green on the spectrum of visible light.
Newton originally divided the spectrum into six named colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.

Complementary colors

complementary colorcomplementarycomplement
Traditionally, the complementary color of yellow is purple; the two colors are opposite each other on the color wheel long used by painters.
Modern color theory uses either the RGB additive color model or the CMY subtractive color model, and in these, the complementary pairs are red–cyan, green–magenta, and blue–yellow.

Secondary color

In the RGB color model, used to create colors on television and computer screens, yellow is a secondary color made by combining red and green at equal intensity.
Before the discovery of CMY, at least as far back as Goethe, the best primary colors were thought to be red, yellow, and blue.

Primary color

primary colorsprimary coloursprimary
It is a primary color in subtractive color systems, used in painting or color printing.
Cyan, magenta, and yellow are good subtractive primaries in that the spectral power distributions of light reflected from idealized inks can be combined for the largest chromaticity gamuts.

Subtractive color

It is a primary color in subtractive color systems, used in painting or color printing.
In color printing, the usual primary colors are cyan, magenta and yellow (CMY).

Color printing

It took advantage of a new color printing process, which used color separation and three different colors of ink; magenta, cyan, and yellow, plus black, to create all the colors on the page.
These ink colors are cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black); abbreviated as CMYK.

Lutein

Chicken farmers understand this, and often add xanthophylls, usually lutein, to make the egg yolks more yellow.
Lutein absorbs blue light and therefore appears yellow at low concentrations and orange-red at high concentrations.

Titanium yellow

Titanium Yellow (nickel antimony titanium yellow rutile, ) is created by adding small amounts of the oxides of nickel and antimony to titanium dioxide and heating. It is used to produce yellow paints with good white coverage and has the LBNL paint code "Y10".
Titanium yellow, also nickel antimony titanium yellow, nickel antimony titanium yellow rutile, CI Pigment Yellow 53, or C.I. 77788, is a yellow pigment with the chemical composition of NiO·Sb 2 O 3 ·20TiO 2 . Its CAS number is.

Leaf

Autumn leaves, yellow flowers, bananas, oranges and other yellow fruits all contain carotenoids, yellow and red organic pigments that are found in the chloroplasts and chromoplasts of plants and some other photosynthetic organisms like algae, some bacteria and some fungi.
In cold autumns, they sometimes change color, and turn yellow, bright-orange, or red, as various accessory pigments (carotenoids and xanthophylls) are revealed when the tree responds to cold and reduced sunlight by curtailing chlorophyll production.

Chloroplast

Autumn leaves, yellow flowers, bananas, oranges and other yellow fruits all contain carotenoids, yellow and red organic pigments that are found in the chloroplasts and chromoplasts of plants and some other photosynthetic organisms like algae, some bacteria and some fungi.
In addition to chlorophylls, another group of yellow–orange pigments called carotenoids are also found in the photosystems.

Fraunhofer lines

calcium K linecalcium K-lineFraunhofer
Yellow fireworks are produced by adding sodium compounds to the firework mixture. Sodium has a strong emission at 589.3 nm (D-line), a very slightly orange-tinted yellow.
Note that there is disagreement in the literature for some line designations; e.g., the Fraunhofer d-line may refer to the cyan iron line at 466.814 nm, or alternatively to the yellow helium line (also labeled D 3 ) at 587.5618 nm. Similarly, there is ambiguity with reference to the e-line, since it can refer to the spectral lines of both iron (Fe) and mercury (Hg).

Envy

From this connection, yellow also took on associations with envy, jealousy and duplicity.
In English-speaking cultures, envy is often associated with the color green, as in "green with envy", and yellow.

Yellow is used to symbolically represent the third, solar plexus chakra (Manipura).
Manipura is often associated with the colors yellow, blue in classical tantra, and red in the Nath tradition.

General classification in the Tour de France

Tour de Francegeneral classificationyellow jersey
In cycle racing, the yellow jersey – or maillot jaune – is awarded to the leader in some stage races. The tradition was begun in the Tour de France where the sponsoring L'Auto newspaper (later L'Équipe) was printed on distinctive yellow newsprint.
The colour was chosen either to reflect the yellow newsprint of the organising newspaper, L'Auto, or because yellow was an unpopular colour and therefore the only one available with which a manufacturer could create jerseys at late notice.

Shades of yellow

Safety yellow is often used for safety and accident prevention information.
Varieties of the color yellow may differ in hue, chroma (also called saturation, intensity, or colorfulness) or lightness (or value, tone, or brightness), or in two or three of these qualities.

School bus yellow

In Canada and the United States, school buses are almost uniformly painted a yellow color (often referred to as "school bus yellow") for purposes of visibility and safety, and British bus operators such as FirstGroup are attempting to introduce the concept there.
In April 1939, Dr. Frank W. Cyr, a professor at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York organized a conference that established national school-bus construction standards for the U.S., including the standard color of yellow for the school bus.
