miku M> red

millu M;W brown

kiʔa K;a white

ga g black

Both light and dark blue and covered by baju bY blue, as well as the darkest violets, and all but the lightest shades of green. Standard yellow is sa s yellow, which also covers the lightest shades of orange and green. All of red and pink, light purples and most of the orange spectrum is referred to as miku M> red, however, dark orange is subsumed under millu M;W brown.
