  1. Actchelly the sea is not blue it just looks blue cause of the sky is reflecting off it so technicaly only the sky is blue.

  2. I don’t like blue, I like bright pink, florescent pink, and light purple. But it is interesting that most people like blue. Also, most of my friends like blue. (I don’t know why)

  3. Maybe blue is the most favourite colour because 53% of flags have it?!
    My opinion is that blue is the most favourite colour because the sea is very fun to play in and that is blue or maybe people just like it because it is the colour of the eyes and the y might like their eyes the best? Well blue is a pretty colour and I do understand why lots of people like it best. I do like blue too but it’s not my favourite. Yellow is probably the best for me!

  4. the sea is not technically blue its the reflection of the sky.so technically the sky isn’t blue + purple rules blue drools . But it probably is true because 53% of the flags have blue in them.

  5. I think Blue is a cool colour, My Favourite colour is baby blue, I think it is a cool colour to be common because it is very pretty and someone said that the ocean is not blue it is just clear because the sky reflects on the ocean. I also think Green is a cool colour because Green is nature and like nature.
