    Everyone else seems more or less correct. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

    I just wanted to answer to tell you a quick and easy rhyme to learn that helps.

    Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain.

    Obviously the first letter corresponds to the correct colour, respectively.

    (referring to the battle of Henry VII and Richard of York, but that's beside the point, it's just easy to remember, it stuck with me through childhood anyway.)

    Traditionally noted as Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet; in that order. But of course they blend into each other so in fact instruments can distinguish hundreds of thousands of colours in a rainbow.
