Note: UCL (Universal Color Language) standard color name identifying whitish colors, such as the color of snow or milk. More specifically, white is the absence of color. It is the color produced by reflection, transmission, or emission of all kinds of light in the proportion in which they exist in the complete visible spectrum, without sensible absorption, being thus fully luminous and devoid of any distinctive hue.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 為「通用色彩語言」的標準色彩名稱,指帶有白色的色彩,如雪白色和乳白色;更明確地說,白色就是缺少色彩。白色的形成是由於物件反射、透射或放射了所有光譜上的光線,而不吸收肉眼可見的可見光,因而形成白色。因此,白色是最亮的無彩色,不含任何特定的色相。
