Pure Red Color Code
Red is one of the three primary colors, which in the RGB color model are red, green, and blue.
The RGB system is used by any type of display monitor – computer, TV, mobile device – which employs red, green, and blue light to create all the colors the human eye can see.
Pure red, or red 1, is one of the web safe colors. This bright red color code is represented by the #FF0000 color hex. This means that red light is fully on, and green and blue light are completely off.
In a similar sense, the RGB numbers are 255, 0, 0. All red, no green, no blue.
