I can't seem to find the reference but I know that each crew title had a particular color. During Apollo it was red, white, blue, I believe, but who was who. Anyone jog my memory?

During Apollo, red was for commander, blue was the lunar module pilot and white was command module pilot.

Thanks Rob. Do you happen to know colors for the Shuttle era?
