It may be that my browser isn't cooperating, but I would only count the left colour as blue- the one in the centre looks rather green to me, and the one on the right rather purple. Is there some kind of German/American cultural difference at work here?

Mark responds:

The center one is cyan, which is blue-green; but the right one is a light blue-- RGB value D0 D0 FF, which as you can see is not biased at all toward red. So you'd better adjust your monitor, or your brain.

You might want to test both using the following, which are all shades of blue, of increasing white-saturation.
00 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 A0 B0 C0 D0 E0 F0 FF
