I have no idea. In the Netherlands we call plain yellow kanarie yellow. A Kanarie is one of those birds people have in a cage at home, I'm to lazy to look up the English word.

So maybe it is just a expression, and they use it ever since. Normal red for Ferrari is also Rosso Corsa, Colorcodes are never just yellow or Red or black

Flys (and many other insects) are attracted to yellow.

There was an old European practise of painting one wall in a room or kitchen bright yellow. This would attract the flys to that wall so they wouldn't be buzzing around bothering you. This led to Fly Yellow.

Interesting piece of info.

So technically speaking the flies would buzz around on the car and not the driver.
