Whoa... someone's been around component video too long. There are seven colors in the visible light spectrum. These wavelengths combine their powers to create white.
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet.
Now, we say that some of these are primary colors, which is where the three count may have come from, but the other colors do have distinct wavelengths. The measurement of the orange light wavelength is actually a standard measurement reference for one yard length.
