Can I get trademark protection over color?

Yes, as per trademark Act, a trademark can be granted over a color or combination of colors. However, such protection is possible only if the color does not describe the nature of the product. For example GREEN for eco-friendly products may not be registrable because of its descriptive nature but green for headphones would be protectable. For protecting a color, a written description of the color might be required by the trademark registry. Such description can be accompanied by the relevant code(s) from an internationally recognized color identification system.
