Yellow is has the highest symbolic value in Buddhism through its link with the saffron robes of monks.

This color, previously worn by criminals, was chosen by Gautam Buddha as a symbol of his humility and separation from materialist society. It thus signifies renunciation, desirelessness, and humility.

Yellow is the color of earth, and thus a symbol of rootedness and the equanimity of the earth.
