Does "purple" mean here violet (blue-red) or crimson (deep red)?

I think it should mean violet. You can rename the page if it makes it clearer.

Actually, I just looked in my dictionary, and according to it, purple = "a mixture or red and blue" whereas violet = "a bluish purple." Which is more or less what my own idea is. So in English, purple generally refers to blue-red. It may be that in other European languages (like French, for example), a term like "violet" is used for what we call purple.

Okay. I will type in the meanings that refer to blue-red. I was confused because in Finnish "purppura" means red (not blue-red), so I'm not sure what "purpura" means for example in Spanish and Portuguese. I will correct the entries if I will find out that "purpura" doesn't mean "purple". (They are obviously the same word, but the meaning might have shifted.)
