Cyan is one of the four process colors commonly used in four-color printing, along with magenta, yellow, and black; this set of colors is referred to as CMYK, with C standing for cyan. Cyan, together with magenta and yellow, is also one of the three subtractive primary colors. Cyan is a pure spectral color, but the same hue can also be generated by mixing equal amounts of green and blue light. As such, cyan is the complement of red: cyan pigments absorb red light while reflecting blue and green lights. Cyan is sometimes called blue-green or turquoise and often goes undistinguished from light blue. Cyan is often referred to as "Electric Blue".
One of the colors used in four-color process reproduction. Often referred to as "process blue", it reflects blue and green light and absorbs red light. It is also one of the filters used in making color separations.
A color that is essential to the CMY color model and the CMYK color-mixing method. The CMY model starts with white and subtracts percentages of cyan, magenta, and yellow to create different colors. bulee View
Cyan is a British progressive rock band original formed by Rob Reed in 1984, but which split up after a few performances and one demo tape. In 1991 Rob Reed (Magenta, Trippa) received a letter from a French fan who had received the original demo from Nick Barrett (of Pendragon and a fan of the band) and was amazed that there was still an interest in Cyan.
