This question already has an answer here:
Can anyone please explain to me why there is one green light at the end of wing and on the other side there is red light? what is the purpose of it and why it uses different colors like red and green instead of same color light?
The question is not about the position of the lights but why they use different color lights? like red light on the left side and green light on the right side. Is there any specific reason for that?
