Top of column's black and yellow (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

craven

Here is my best explanation:

'yellow' is the definition.

(seen before)

'top of column's black' is the subsidiary indication.

'top of' suggests taking the first letters.

'black' becomes 'raven'.

The first letter of 'columns' is 'c'.

'c'+'raven'='craven'

'and' is the link.

(Other definitions for craven that I've seen before include "Cowardly and fearful", "Fearful", "yellow", "Without backbone", "Contemptibly cowardly", "Cowardly, spineless", "Lacking courage, cowardly", "Yellow", "Faint-hearted" and "Chicken-hearted".)
