Lesser known symbolism of the color yellow

(Looking at a Mark Rothko)

Papa, does red mean Rothko is warm?
Does blue mean cold and maybe lonely?
-It can, yeah.
-What would you paint if you were an abstract expressionist?
I would paint a yellow painting. It means bananas and also you feel kind of weak.... or weaky........ or something?
