In Modern Hebrew, light blue, tchelet (?) is differentiated from blue, kachol (?). In Modern Greek, light blue, galazio (?) is also differentiated from blue, ble (?).
Light blue in Hinduism: Shiva, the Destroyer, is depicted in light blue tones and is called neela kantha, or blue-throated, for having swallowed poison in an attempt to turn the tide of a battle between the gods and demons in the gods' favor.
King Louis IX of France, better known as Saint Louis (1214-1270), became the first King of France to regularly dress in blue. This was copied by other nobles. Paintings of the mythical King Arthur began to show him dressed in blue. The coat of arms of the Kings of France became an azure or light blue shield, sprinkled with golden fleur-de-lis or lilies. Blue had come from obscurity to become the royal color.
