Rainbow Ladder

[Post New]by arvalynne on Oct 13, 12 10:32 AM
The colours don't match up to the clue (at least for me). Does anyone know what the correct sequence of colours is? To me it looks like red, purple, light blue, green, yellow, orange, red.

There are no duplicate colours. I think you need to set your monitor brightness / contrast / gamma correctly.

The solution is what you'd expect of a rainbow from red to violet -

red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise [pale blue-grey], blue, purple (bottom up).

Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain is a good way to remember the colours and sequence of the rainbow.

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue,indigo and violet.

That's a great way to calibrate the colours on your monitor!

If it serves a dual purpose, all the better I guess!

If you put the colors in top to bottom, try putting them in bottom to top - or the other way around (I can't remember which way is right, but I had the same problem)!
