Colours in the Mind

Okay, so let's play a little game that I've been thinking of bringing up. Here's how I figure it will work: I list a few colours (or colour combinations). You tell me what companies / signs / brands / products pop in your head. Let's begin (in no particular):

1. red & white
2. black
3. red & green & blue
4. brown
5. yellow & purple
6. blue
7. orange
8. bright/neon green
9. pink
10. white & silver
11. blue & yellow

Fun for the whole family!
