The first recorded use of “azure” as a color term in English was in 1915. In Russian and some other languages, there is no word for blue, but several words for azure (голубой, goluboy) and dark blue (синий , breast). The ancient Greek word for blue, glaukos, could also mean light green, gray or yellow. In Modern Hebrew, azure, tchelet (תכלת), is distinguished from blue, kachol (כחול). In modern Greek, azure, galazion (γαλάζιο) is also distinguished from blue, ble (μπλε).
