Colour palettes in the Middle East

I know that green just about the most popular colour in the region but know very little about the association of other colours. A google search provided nothing but fairly glib, generic westerner orientated results with the odd snippet about other cultures. Does anyone know of a good resource that can help me find out more about how colours are interpreted in "Arab eyes"?

PS. I'm glad this site is in English. It is (like it or not) the main language of the internet and if this site was solely in Arabic, then it could easily become a place where (trendy non-Arab) people would come to skim for visual ideas to create "cool Arab(ish) style" designs without having much understanding of it's real value. Style over communication? No thanks. There too much of that already.
