Spanish Colours – Introduction
In Spanish, a colour that is being used as an adjective (describing a noun) has to agree with the gender and quantity of the noun.
Below is a table showing each colour and how it is shown in Spanish taking the gender and quantity into consideration:
The red dress - El vestido rojo.
The red apple - La manzana roja.
The red dresses - Los vestidos rojos.
The red apples - Las manzanas rojas.
When the colour is referred to in its noun form (i.e. the colour red), the Spanish language always uses the masculine singular form for all colours.
The color red - El colór rojo.
