Another important issue that we need to focus on about German colors is that the initials of German color names should be written in lowercase.
As you know, the initials of all names in German are capitalized.
In other words, the initials of all nouns, whether it is a proper name or a generic name, are capitalized in a sentence. But colors are not names. Colors are adjectives. Therefore, when writing a color name in a sentence in German, we do not need to capitalize the first letter of the color. Because the initials of adjectives do not need to be capitalized.

However, if we are going to write a color after the dot, if the first word of the sentence is to be a color, then since every sentence starts with a capital letter, the first word of the sentence is written with a capital letter, even if it is a color name or another adjective.
