Aqua (#00FFFF) is a highly saturated and cool shade of cyan commonly associated with light (64.8% match), quick (64.7% match), and bright (64.4% match). When Aqua is combined with Steel Blue, it appears clear and refreshing. When joined with Mint Green, the mood becomes more clear. When Aqua is added to Vivid Burgundy, it evokes happy and bright feelings. When paired with its complementary color #FF0000, a less saturated variant of the shade "Red", it can convey intense or cheerful emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #FF00FE (a shade of "Magenta") and #FEFF00 (a shade of "Yellow"), the resulting palette becomes cooler than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "dynamic" to the "classic" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a dynamic and cheerful atmosphere.
