The D'ni had six symbols, resembling an eye, to represent basic colors.
Gehn believed the system has a deeper connection to Five. By drawing intermediate symbols, it is possible to form a matrix analogous to the relation between numbers and letters.
Curiously, the most basic shapes correspond to orange, green and purple, the traditional secondary colors in 19th century European color wheels.
Only four D'ni words for colors are known: oko (black), hahzah (white), roodsh (red), trel (blue).
