The youngest of angels sport this wear,
VS has a rep that makes boys want to stare.
Yes the color is girlie, but you find it everywhere.

Somewhere in between red and blue,
A deep, rich shade that is so true,
Worn by Romans and Bishops and means royalty and piety.

Three beautiful greens made by the mineral world,
– emerald, jade and celadon –
but how many more shades of green animated nature has unfurled.

Lavender is a light tone of violet.
The name comes from the flower of the lavender plant.
Originally, the name lavender only meant the color of this flower.

OED calls it between crimson and violet

Green is the color of emeralds, jade, and growing
grass. In the continuum
of colors of visible light
it is located between yellow and blue. Green is the color most
Shades of green

In the Category: Shades of green
Green politics meet Eastern
green mamba’s medium
to large arboreal venom

There’s a million meanings for vermillion
Or at least six, including a comic from Helix
And some disambiguation to add to your consternation
