Cyan is viewed as a major color that lies between green and blue. When people look at a rainbow and see 7 colors, this is cultural whereby language such as green and blue jump to mind but colors between such as cyan do not. In Japan, green and blue were historically the same concept. This is analogous to not seeing cyan between blue and green for cultural reasons.
