Indigo is a color that is traditionally regarded as a color in the visible spectrum, as well as one of the seven colors of the rainbow: the color between blue and violet. Although traditionally considered one of seven major spectral colors, sources differ as to its actual position in the electromagnetic spectrum. Indigo is a deep and bright color close to the color wheel blue (a primary color in the RGB color space), as well as to some variants of ultramarine.
The color indigo is named after the indigo dye derived from the plant  Indigofera tinctoria and related species. The earliest direct evidence for the use of indigo dates to around 4000 BCE and comes from Huaca Prieta , in contemporary Peru. Pliny mentions India as the source of the dye, imported in small quantities via the Silk Road. The Greek term for the dye was Ἰνδικὸν φάρμακον ("Indian dye"), which, adopted to Latin as indicumand via Portuguese gave rise to the modern word indigo.El Salvador has lately been the biggest producer of indigo.
Indigo was actually a plant that got its name because it came from the Indus Valley, discovered some 5,000 years ago, where it was called nila, meaning dark blue. And by the 7th Century BC, people starting using the plant as a dye—the Mesopotamians were even carving out recipes for making indigo dye onto clay tablets for record-keeping. By 1289, knowledge of the dye made its way to Europe—when the Venetian merchant traveler Marco Polo reported on it.
But it wasn’t until 1640 when demand started to pick up for indigo. Spanish explorers discovered an American species of Indigo and began to cultivate the product in Guatemala. The English and French subsequently began to encourage indigo cultivation in their colonies in the West Indies. Indigo dye could be made from two different types of plants—the indigo plant, which produced the best results, and from the woad plant. 
Isaac Newton introduced indigo as one of the seven base colors of his work. In the mid-1660s, when Newton bought a pair of prisms at a fair near Cambridge, the East India Company had begun importing indigo dye into England, supplanting the homegrown woad as source of blue dye. Newton acknowledged that the spectrum had a continuum of colors, but named seven: "The original or primary colours are Red, yellow, Green, Blew, & a violet purple; together with Orange, Indigo, & an indefinite varieties of intermediate gradations. He linked the seven prismatic colors to the seven notes of a western major scale as shown in his color wheel, Having decided upon seven colors.Indigo is therefore counted as one of the traditional colors of the rainbow, According to Isaac Asimov, "It is customary to list indigo as a color lying between blue and violet, but it has never seemed to me that indigo is worth the dignity of being considered a separate color. To my eyes it seems merely deep blue. ”(Google credit, Wikipedia)
