The color blue in percentages

If you're identifying color for pretty much anything digital, you're working in an RGB colorspace. If the project you're working on requires percentage representation, blue is made of 0% red, 0% green, and 100% blue.

If you're identifying color for a print project, you're most likely using a CMYK colorspace—the percentages are 100% cyan, 100% magenta, 0% yellow, 0% black.
