Summary/Abstract: Colors are present in all areas of our life, even their absence has a meaning, life is black and white or grey without colors. The study reviews colors black, white, blue, red, yellow and grey in the Bulgarian and Hungarian phraseology. Black stands mostly for death, sorrow and darkness. White is the opposite – it symbolizes birth, happiness and light. Blue connotes beating due to the hint a hit causes to our skin. Green means green light – free go – borrowed from the traffic light. Red is the color of health, yellow the color of illness. Grey is linked to economy.
