Do you know why the colours of navigational lamps are green and red? Apparently Ships of the City of Dublin Steamship Company were equipped with white masthead, green starboard lights and red port navigation lights. The P&O Company of Southampton had a different arrangement, green for port, green and red for starboard. The British Admiralty ordained that starboard was to be green and port red.
