In Brazilian Portuguese, we don’t have expressions of feelings for colors like blue. In some places, if you say you are green(tô verde), and rub your belly, some people may understand that you are hungry. But this is not very common.Tô verde is a compressed version of the expression I’m green.
I’m >>Estou
Green >>verde
To be clearer, you can be among friends and say ”I’m green with hunger. Shall we get a snack?”>>translation>>Estou verde de fome, vamos pegar um lanche?”
