color charge (plural color charges)

  1. (physics) In the Standard Model of particle physics, a property possessed by quarks, anti-quarks, and gluons that determine rules for how these particles may interact. There are three pairs of colors and anti-colors -- named red, green, and blue, and their corresponding anti-colors (e.g., anti-red). The terminology has nothing to do with visible color.
