The signs at tram stops in Zürich mark each route with a numbered and coloured panel. Where two or more trams serve a stop these panels sit one above the other, rather like a flag. The colours are close enough to interact. In daylight the passengers can come to their own conclusions on how well these colours 'go' together.

There is no convincing evidence that an aesthetic consideration of these combinations of colour has played a significant part in the tram routing decisions of the Zürcher Verkehrsverbund. Not that I wouldn't put it past them.
