Usage notes[edit]

"In Hungarian, piros [...is] associated with blood inside the body, [] whereas vörös is associated with blood spilled [...and] the fact that after a while, blood spilled tends to get darker could explain the inclusion of darker shades in vörös."[1] Common collocations include vörös csillag (red star symbol) and vörös zászló (red flag), vörös bor (red wine), vörös ördög (red devil) and vörös rózsa (red rose).[1]
