Interesting Fact: Hungary

The Hungarian language has two words for the colour red. Although they refer to the same shade, they are used in different contexts. Different conventions apply, depending on whether one is speaking about blood, wine, roses, and so on. In some cases only one of the two words will do, but in others they are interchangeable.
