Colors, in addition to their artificial meanings, express human emotions, thoughts and characteristics, for this reason, color in the general and modern sense and with respect to its functions and inherent elements shows the better understanding of the emotions and thoughts of the layers of the tales. Thus the authors by adopting a descriptive-analytical research methodology and by referring to the “Iranian Tales “compiled by Anjavi Shirazi try to classify the colors and their usage in these tales. The findings showed that the colors come into new usages in the narrative texture of tales which can further be divided into several categories: the expression of value and class beliefs, colors with the function of public interpretations and beliefs, symbolic beliefs, colors to serve the expression of details, expressing the aspirations of the public and mythological beliefs.   With reference to such usage, colors can be divided into two categories:  colors such as black, white, green, and yellow are used to express intentions, public interpretations, symbolic and value beliefs. Sometimes the colors are used with other colors to describe the details or specific functions. Golden and golden attributes of yellow are allocated to rich classes of people, and its various ranges or shads are attributed to the wishes and demands of the lower class of society.
