Explanation of colors in races

Red is used to represent the Chinese because they consider red as an auspicious colour. Red also symbolizes marriage and the birth of sons ("happiness red" is a fairly specific hue). The Chinese emperor wrote his edicts in vermilion. In Chinese science and philosophy red denotes spice, vitality, and energy at its maximal state.

Blue is used to represent the Eurasians because it is the traditional colour of the European great Goddess and Divine Wisdom (Sophia, Chokmah), from the deities of the Neolithic to the blue robes of the Virgin Mary.

While yellow represents the Indians as it is the colour of the light in their Deepavali Diwali, the festival of light. The Malays are represented by green as it is the colour of their religion. It is also the colour of their green packets which is given by adults to the young and unmarried during Hari Raya Puasa.
