The original meaning of different colors stem from the characters of the novel romance of the 3 kingdoms and Chinese opera. It is also based on the fung shui primary 5 colors. Yellow was actually called imperial yellow.

They did not have gold as we know it back then and pink, purple or orange were hard to come by if at all. Even green was rare. Because back then some colors were not so easy to produce in sufficient quantities and consistent hue.
