Colors in Buddhism

From Colors of Religion: Buddhism.

The principle colors involved in Buddhism are Blue, Black, White, Red, Green, and Yellow, and each — except for Black — are aligned to a specific Buddha.

See Five Wisdom Buddhas for the five qualities of the Buddha and each Buddha's color.

Each of the five Buddhas first identifies a specific human failing and then helps us in transforming it into a positive attribute, bringing about the spiritual evolution required for enlightenment.
