WHAT DOES CYAN MEAN IN ENGLISH?

cyan

Cyan

Cyan (/ˈsaɪ.ən/ or /ˈsaɪ.æn/is a greenish-blue color and is of the three primary colours of the subtractive CMYK color model. On the color wheels of the RGB (additive) and CMYK (subtractive) color models, it is located midway between blue and green, making it the complementary color of red. Its name is derived from the Ancient Greek κυανός, transliterated kýanos, meaning "dark blue". It was formerly known as "cyan blue" or cyan-blue and its first recorded use of as a color name in English was in 1879. Further origins of the color name can be traced back to a dye produced from the cornflower (Centaurea cyanus). The web color cyan is synonymous with aqua. In most languages, 'cyan' is not a basic color term and it phenomenologically appears as a greenish vibrant hue of blue to most English speakers. Reasons for why cyan is not linguistically acknowledged as a basic color term can be found in the frequent lack of distinction between blue and green in many languages. Some varieties in the cyan color range are teal, turquoise, electric blue, aquamarine, and other colors described as blue-green.
