@blair0712,
In the US, it's often associated with anger or danger. Here in S. Korea, it's a symbol of good luck or good quality.

@blair0712,
In Scandinavia red symbolises
Love as well as Hate
In the church red stands for Christ and the Holy Ghost
and the Devil and Hell
Vitality on one side ( like wearing a red dress) and aggresion on the other side (being so mad you see red)
red roses for love
and a red flag in politics for communism and the Nazi flag was also red with their symbol, which represented power.

It means the danger of the religious wingnuts that the GOP has become.

@raprap,
Over here it's pretty decent music and pretty decent politics.

In Germany, red in politics is the colour for Social Democrats since 1875.
The Nazi flag was red because it was said to be the "Blutfahne"

In the U.S., the Red in our flag symbolizes corporate synergy from the likes of the obesity epidemic from Coca Cola, Sarah Lee, and Kellog's junk food consumption; imperialism from Nike sneaker manufacturing; insanely steep profit margins of Beats audio; the too-big-to-fail financial titanism of Bank of America; etc....

According to legend, the Danish flag came into Danish possession during the Battle of Lyndanisse in 1219. The Danes were on a failing crusade in Estonia, but after praying to God a flag fell from the sky. After this event, Danish King Valdemar II went on to defeat the Estonians.
The red symboliyes the blood of Christ and the white cross symbol for the cross Jesus died on.

The Swedish social democrats also have a red flag with a logo on it - just like the communists

@saab,
Wilhelm Hasselmann (Socialist Workers Party, which became the General German Workers' Association, then Social Democratic Party) was the first editor for the Social-Democratic "Die Rote Fahne" (The red flag) in 1876/77. (He later emigrated and ,in 1888, became an American citizen.)

The association of a red flag with workers goes back to 1848 revolution.
And thus, we've got the red colour in our national flag (which is the one from 1848).

To clarify: the black-red-gold colour of our national flag goes back to 1813, to the flags of the Urburschenschaft in Jena, the first Burschenschaft, a traditional form of German student fraternities.

The Jena Urburschenschaft had 859 active students as members, about 60 per cent of all the students at the university of Jena from 1815 to 1820. One of its first members was Heinrich von Gagern, the president of the Frankfurt Parliament in 1848/49.

@Walter Hinteler,
There's an English Wikipedia report: National colours of Germany
