Everyone has a favourite colour. A new study from the BBC found the most common favourite is blue. It also said people change the colours they like as they get older. Many people like darker colours the older they become. The BBC said dark yellowish-brown was the world's least liked colour.

Blue has been a favourite colour since the 1800s. We have positive feelings about blue. Many colours in nature are blue. A blue sky makes people happy. A negative feeling about blue is in the English language. In English, people say they are "feeling blue". This means they feel sad. Many people like the colour of their favourite team.
