Color is a characteristic of visible objects dependent upon reflection or absorption of light and an individual's ability to perceive it. All colors fall somewhere on the color spectrum.

Factions, countries, and interstellar powers which competed against each other were represented by colors on their clothing and flags. (TOS: "The Menagerie, Part I", TNG: "The Last Outpost", VOY: "Nemesis")

For many generations on Triskelion, the collars of obedience identified which of the three Providers owned a thrall. Each Provider was represented by a color – red, green, and yellow. The master thrall had a collar with all three colors. (TOS: "The Gamesters of Triskelion")

In 2152, obsessed with developing a new command chair for Captain Jonathan Archer due to mind-altering radiation from a trinary star system, Malcolm Reed asked to run some color-choices by Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker for the headrest. Archer commented that he cared not what color the headrest was or whether it could serve him iced tea, that he just wanted a place to sit. (ENT: "Singularity")

In 2254, when he was a captive of the Talosians, Christopher Pike was informed that if he found the form and color of the protein complex in a vial unappetizing, it could appear as any food he visualized. (TOS: "The Cage", "The Menagerie, Part II")

In 2263 in the alternate reality, Doctor Leonard McCoy attempted to distract Spock by asking him what his favorite color was, just before cauterizing his wound. Afterwards, he explained that it was said that medical treatment hurt less when surprised by the pain, a theory that Spock described, using colorful language, as "horseshit." (Star Trek Beyond)

Starfleet vessels, by the 23rd century, utilized a number of colored alert signals, such as yellow alert and red alert. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, et al.)

Early television and movies were filmed in black and white. (ENT: "Impulse", "Cogenitor", DS9: "It's Only a Paper Moon")

In 2268, after being transported to Triskelion by the Providers, James T. Kirk realized he was not on Gamma II by the color of the sky. (TOS: "The Gamesters of Triskelion")

Later that year, the 892-IV show Name the Winner made a point of emphasizing the fact that it was broadcast in color. (TOS: "Bread and Circuses")

In 2371, Neelix described those Talaxians who suffered from the effects of the metreon cascade as having faces the color of shale. (VOY: "Jetrel")

In 2374, when trying to get to know Seven of Nine better following her liberation from the Borg Collective, Captain Kathryn Janeway showed her a picture of her as the young girl Annika Hansen. She noted that there was still a lot they did not know about the girl, such as where she went to school or what her favorite color was. Seven, however, declared the matter to be irrelevant and demanded to be sent back to the Borg. Later, though, after matters had calmed between the two, Seven commented, seemingly apropos of nothing, "red," but then explained further, "The child you spoke of, the girl. Her favorite color was red." (VOY: "The Gift")

The odd color choice of pink for tribbles, among other things, in Star Trek: The Animated Series was due to director Hal Sutherland being colorblind. (Drawn to the Final Frontier)
