          Just a wild guess, which, if there are any Spanish literary
historians among the list members, could be confirmed or not.

            Isn't it the case that "colorado" was used as a more "poetical"
synonym for "Rojo, bermejo etc., perhaps considered less elegant? Incidentally,
in the political history of various countries (not only Russia) we have the
more right-wing minded people grouping themselves in the "White Party" whereas
those at the left would be the "Red Party". Well, in Uruguay and Paraguay we
find "Pariido Blanco" vs. "Partido COLORADO". God bless,
