Scarlet (from the Persian säqirlāt) is a red color with a hue that is somewhat toward the orange. It is a pure chroma on the color wheel. It is redder than vermilion. Traditionally, scarlet is the color of flame. It may also refer to the color of the blood of a living person. Scarlet is made of red and orange. Metaphorically, scarlet can refer to a sinful or whorish (a scarlet woman).
