1. Red is often associated with anger and aggressive behaviour.

2. Blue is often associated with clarity and purity.

3. Green is often associated with nature and growth.

 

The first colours that came to me anyway.

Anyone else who reads this, please, don't be shy, tell me what you think. To start with I was thinking along the lines of edit being green.

Red for delete because it signifies danger. I don't naturally associate adding and editing with any color.

red yellow green here as well. yellow seems more nuetral than blue too me. plus your rgb doesnt make a great color combo imo. red yellow green seems like a more viable color scheme
