Primary color

Synonyms: Synonyms: Main color

In color theory, primary colors are the trinity of blue, red, and yellow, as they cannot be created by mixing other colors.

 

However, in UI design, primary color means the major tones of the brand or merely those which are used the most in the interface. There might be from one to three primary colors, but not more.
