Understanding Blue Hex Codes

When it comes to digital design, blue hex codes are used to create the perfect shade of blue. Each hex code is made up of 6 letters or numbers which are linked to how much of the colors red, green, and blue are within the color.  By changing the combinations, you change the color. 

The hex color code is laid out in the following  format:


Primary Blue Hex Code

Blue is one of the three primary colors and true blue or primary blue contains no red or green. Likewise, yellow (a combination of red and green) contains no blue!

The primary blue hex color code is #0000FF.

This code is broken up into 3 sections – The first two digits are for red color values, the second two are for green color values and the third two are for blue color values.

In the case of primary blue, there are no values for red and green.

However, if for example, you wanted to create red, you would remove the blue values and instead use red’s hex code which is #FF0000. Likewise, if you wanted pure green, you could use the #00FF00 green hex color code.

By combining blue and red, you create purple!

Primary Blue RGB Code

Just like blue’s hex color code, RGB color codes are also broken down into 3 sections, each represented by a number between 0 and 255. Zero represents no color while 255 represents the full color.

Primary blue RGB color code is RGB(0,0,255)

Like before, we have zero values for red and green. Again, if you wanted to create red, you would use an RGB color code of RGB(255,0,0) and green would be RGB(0,255,0).

Why Is Blue So Popular?

When it comes to color psychology and how colors influence people’s emotions, it is well-known that the color blue is associated with peace, serenity, stability, reliability, loyalty, and intelligence.

Because of this, blue is a very popular color choice for everything from home decor to logos. In fact, blue is one of the most commonly used colors in branding and marketing because it is known to evoke feelings of trust and dependability.

Fun fact!  There are over 16 million hex color codes to choose from so you really are spoiled for choice when it comes to color codes! Oh, and all these colors are visible on just about all modern monitors, TVs, and mobile devices.
