Hue
The hue of a colour distinguishes it from other colours, according to the colour’s dominant wavelength within the seven colours of the rainbow spectrum (red, orange yellow, green, blue, indigo, or violet). So it is the hue that tells you if the colour is blue or red. Different shades of red, for example pink, are still considered as the "hue" of red. Hue is one of three coordinates in the Hue-Saturation-Value colour space. Saturation describes the intensity of a colour, while value describes the lightness or darkness of the colour.
