We all live in a turquoise submarine

Apparently this week the Iranian navy revealed their latest submarine, resplendent in bright turquoise paint. Why would the navy use this colour since I would think it could make it easy to spot? Could they have thought that it would blend in with the sea and be hard to spot? Surely not.

Iran green

The colour green has become synonymous with protests in Iran. Apparently, the Iranian government has been surprised by the number of protesters (greens) waving their flags in public places making it hard to show pro-government supporters because of all the green. Ihave read reports that they have developed a colour filter that would reduce the amount of green on their TV broadcasts. Does anyone know any more about this?
