Aqua is a spectral color between blue and green that is named for the color of water. In an RGB color model, aqua is often represented as the strongest intensity of green and blue with no red. This is due to the properties of water and light. When white light travels through water, red wavelengths are often absorbed and blues and greens are more likely to escape absorption.
