Magenta, also know as fuchsia, is a vivid reddish or pinkish purple color named after the flower fuchsia plant, which is a synonym for magenta.
Magenta is a color evoked by a light that is stronger in blue and red wavelengths than in yellowish-green wavelengths. Complements of magenta have a wavelength of 500-530 nm. In light experiments, magenta can be produced by removing the lime-green wavelengths from white light. It is an extra-spectral color, meaning it cannot be generated by a single wavelength of light, being a mixture of red and blue wavelengths. The name magenta comes from the dye magenta, commonly called fuchsine, discovered shortly after the 1859 Battle of Magenta from the color of the land all covered by the blood at Magenta, Lombardy near Milan.

In color printing, the color called pigment magenta, or printer's magenta is one of the three primary pigment colors which, along with yellow and cyan, constitute the three subtractive primary colors of pigment. The secondary colors of pigment are blue, green, and red. As such, the hue magenta is the complement of green: Magenta pigments absorb green light. So magenta and green are opposite colors.

The CMYK printing process was invented in the 1890s, when newspapers began to publish color comic strips. Different formulations are used for printer's ink, so there can be variations in the printed color that is pure magenta ink. A printer’s magenta is usually out of gamut on a computer display.

Electric magenta is one of the three secondary colors in the RGB color model. For computer color rendition, that specific hue of magenta composed of equal parts of red and blue light was termed the web color fuchsia and was assigned as an alias for the RGB code of magenta on a list of standardized web colors. Electric magenta and fuchsia are exactly the same color.

Before 1958 the color magenta was called the brilliant rose in Crayola crayons, after 1958 the name was changed to magenta. There is also a somewhat redder and slightly less saturated hue termed fashion fuchsia that is used in women's fashion.
