What are the colors in a rainbow?

I just need to know the names of the colors in a rainbow.

I learned ROY G BIV, too.
These colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.
Sometimes they fade and you think you cannot see them all, but they are there. When you see a truly brilliant rainbow, it's almost beyond belief that anything could be so beautiful!

There's a song that little children sometimes learn:
Red and yellow
Green and blue
Shiny yellow
Purple, too:
All the colors that I know
And they're in the rainbow!

The song leaves out indigo and uses the word purple instead of violet, but for a child, "purple" would probably include both indigo and violet.

There are other bands -- infrared before the color red and ultraviolet beyond violet -- but our eyes cannot see these bands. We can measure them with scientific instruments, however.

A traditional rainbow has (in order): red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I've noticed sometimes pink is included towards the top of the rainbow when an artist paints a rainbow, but usually, it includes the six I mentioned above.

A rainbow has 7 colors. Remember it as VIBGYOR- Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red. This is the reverse order which is easy to memorize from the word VIBGYOR.
