Black is the darkest colour, described as the result of absence or absorption of light. A natural part of the background and nocturnal surroundings, it is commonly associated with darkness and secrecy - no surprise since it provides such an excellent disguise during the night. Utilized in military clothing and kit by many armies worldwide, either as a standalone colour or part of the camouflage, it became a symbol of various Special Forces, so-called black ops.
