Blue light is a secondary additive colour - as it is one of the colours to make white light

You 'see' blue when all the other wavelengths of colour are absorbed into a surface, and blue is reflected to your eye.

Because blue light waves are the shortest, they scatter and we see a blue sky. We associate blue with daytime.
