Depends on what you're talking about. If you're talking about paint or other artistic media, black is the combination of all colors. If you're talking about light however, white is the combination of all colors of light.

Tem diferença entre ❤❤❤❤❤ e preto? Ou eles são os mesmo? Is there a difference between ❤❤❤❤❤ and preto? Or are they the same?

From wikipedia: In Portuguese, ❤❤❤❤❤ is an adjective for the color black, although preto is the most common antonym of branco (white). In Brazil and Portugal, ❤❤❤❤❤ is the most respectful way to address people of Black African descent, with preto sometimes being considered politically incorrect or a racial slur.

i think of 'vermalha' like vermillion- a shade of red that looks like healthy, freshly shed human blood.

Amarelo makes me think about a yellow Armadillo that appeared in some children's cartoon when I was small. Don't know if that helps...
