Abstract: We discuss the existence of a common colour-magnitude relation CMR ofmetal-poor globular clusters and early-type galaxies, i.e. giant ellipticals,normal ellipticals and lenticulars, dwarf ellipticals and lenticulars, anddwarf spheroidals. Such CMR would cover a range of ~ 14 mag, extending from thebrightest galaxies, down to the globular clusters on the fainter side.
