See the reason I brought up blue, it that the word can't be changed in an way.  The Blues (added S), The Bluey (added y) are words which wouldn't be accepted.  But as a noun on it's own..
▸ noun:  any of numerous small chiefly blue butterflies of the family Lycaenidae
▸ noun:  blue clothing ("She was wearing blue")
▸ noun:  the color of the clear sky in the daytime ("He had eyes of bright blue")
▸ noun:  any organization or party whose uniforms or badges are blue ("The Union army was a vast blue")
▸ noun:  the sodium salt of amobarbital that is used as a barbiturate; used as a sedative and a hypnotic
▸ noun:  the sky as viewed during daylight ("He shot an arrow into the blue")
▸ noun:  used to whiten laundry or hair or give it a bluish tinge
