Colors are used to represent emotions; especially in advertising.

People have even come up with color-emotion charts like this one:

Yet, depending on the country, some colors have different meanings... in one country (eg USA) WHITE represents purity, cleanness, while it the other county (eg China) it's the color to represent mourning.

Is there any color-emotion chart which is applicable worldwide ?
