    to pass with flying colors 是從 to come off with flying colors來的

    flying colors是指飛舞的旗子

    以前在海上打仗贏了 船上的旗子就繼續飄揚

    所以 to come off with flying colors就表示打仗打贏了

    to pass with flying colors則是指 你很成功地通過考驗

    例句1:

    He passed the test with flying colors.

    (He not only passed the test, but also did very well on it. )

    他不只通過考試, 還考得很好

    例句2:

    Woman1: I tested my boyfriends loyalty last night.

    (女人1: 我昨晚測驗我男朋友的忠誠度)

    Woman2: How did he do? (女人2: 結果如何?)

    Woman1: He passed it with flying colors. (女人1: 他很成功地通過考驗)
