"Gelb", "Oranje", .....

Tuesday : 03 Apr '07 - 10:11 | damen default two comments, already

Interesting stuff, how do you call the light in the middle of the traffic light. In the Netherlands we say "Oranje", which is orange. But here in Germany they always say it is yellow ("Gelb").

Is it orange or yellow?



How I got into this discussion? Well, we are reporting our project status using traffic lights, where we always want to have green, sometimes have yellow/orange and hope to never get to red (which means management will kick our a..).

Post your opinion here as comment, I wanna know how it is called in different countries!

Amber is the proper name in Ireland. Some people say yellow, some say orange but I like the phrase “the amber gambler” for those who accelerate up when they see it.

Ook in Nederland is de officiele benaming GEEL.
Zowel op de weg als op het spoor.
