Difference between Eastern and Western culture. Black and White Color in China.

Here is an example of difference between Eastern and Western culture:

  • White is the color of mourning in Chinese culture. Unlike the Western meanings of purity, chastity, holiness and cleanliness, white is associated with death and is used predominantly in funerals in Chinese culture. Ancient Chinese people wore white clothes and hats only when they mourned for the dead.
  • Black is a symbol of mourning and bereavement in Western societies, but in Chinese culture Black, corresponding to water, is a neutral color. The I Ching, regards black as Heaven’s color. The saying “heaven and earth of mysterious black” was rooted in the observation that the northern sky was black for a long time. They believed Tian Di, or Heavenly Emperor, resided in the North Star.
  • The Taiji symbol uses black and white to represent the unity of Yin and Yang. Ancient Chinese regarded black as the king of colors and honored black longer than any other color. Lao Zi said that five colors make people blind, so the Dao School chose black as the color of the Dao.
  • In modern China, black is used in daily clothing. Possibly adopted from Western practices, black may also be used during a funeral to symbolize mourning. A black ribbon is usually hung over the deceased’s picture.
