Cyan, also called aqua, is the blue-green color that is between blue and green on a modern RGB color wheel.

The modern RGB color wheel replaced the traditional old-fashioned RYB color wheel because it is possible to display much brighter and more saturated colors using the primary and secondary colors of the RGB color wheel. In the terminology of color theory, RGB color space has a much larger color gamut than RYB color space.

The first recorded use of cyan as a color name in English was in 1879.[3]
