Why Do Passports Come In Four Colors

Hello guys and welcome back again for another great article. WHY do passports only come in four colors?

The most common color. Passports with red covers are chosen by countries with a communist past or present. Members of the European Union, except Croatia, also adopt passports in burgundy and other shades of red.

The rarest passports are those with a black cover. Citizens of some African countries such as Kenya, Botswana, Zambia, Burundi, Gabon, Angola, Chad, Congo, Malawi and others hold such passports. Also New Zealanders have black passports, since black is the national color of New Zealand.

The next most widespread color. The blue cover symbolizes the "new world." The 15 Caribbean countries own blue passports. The bloc of South American countries also have blue passports to symbolize their connection to the trade union.

The passports of most Muslim countries are green. Like Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan. Green is considered the favorite color of the Prophet Muhammad and a symbol of nature and life.
