yellow and gold. money, money, money, oh and death. the reason why its yellow and not green for money is because were talking about the old stuff like gold. daisy is called the golden girl because shes an old memory that Gatsby wants to relive. also when nick invites them over for tea, Gatsby is wearing a gold tie. Also yellow? Gatsby's car, symbol of his desire—and failure—to enter New York's high society. And if that weren't enough, T. J. Eckleburg's glasses, looking over the wasteland of America, are yellow.
