What are the colors in Portuguese?

You know the name of the colors… But if you want to know a color of something, how do you make this question? Let’s see… What do you have around you?

Qual é a cor da sua carteira? What’s the color of your wallet?

Qual é a cor do seu celular? What’s the color of your cellphone?

Quais são as cores da sua roupa? What are the colors of your outfit?

So, to ask someone about a color you can say: Qual é a cor de and complete with what you are talking about. If you want to ask about more than one color, the question is: Quais são as cores de + what you’re talking about.

You can also say the same sentence but backwards, for example:

De que cor é o seu celular? What color is your phone?

De que cor é a sua carteira? What color is your wallet?

If you are pointing to things without saying their names and still want to know the colors you can say:

Que cor é essa? What color is this?
