Color group: Primary

See also

Primary colors are a group of colors that can be mixed together to create a wider range of colors. Red, yellow and blue are primary colors because they cannot be created by mixing other colors together. In essence they are natural colors that, along with black and white, can make every other color on the spectrum.

Red, yellow and blue are classic colors that are seen in everyday life. Many toys and children’s furniture are designed in these bright and playful colors but they are also used in store awnings, clothing and a myriad of other items. These colors have their own symbols and meanings with red being representative of love and anger, yellow being the symbol of both joy and cowardliness and blue standing for boys, strength and sadness. Due to their presence in the natural environment, these primary colors appear in the histories of practically every country and they continue to play a role today.

Anyone who owns a color wheel understands the utter importance of these primary colors because they are the keys to creating all the other colors while remaining beautiful and ever-present in their own right. These are colors that will never go out of style, especially in their original forms.
