Memory effects on colour perception

Does knowledge about an objectís typical color influence how we perceive the actual color of this object? For example, Germans know that a German mailbox is yellow. Does such knowledge influence how we see the actual color of a mailbox? Or can we perceive the color independently of our prior knowledge? These are the questions at the core of research on the so-called memory color effect.
