How do I get a purple light?

Where's The Purple?

If you mix unequal amounts of red, blue and green light, you begin to develop the secondary and tertiary colors.

If you take three flashlights, one with green light, one with blue light and one with red light and shine them on the wall, you get white light. If the red and blue flashlight are stronger than the green flashlight, you will get a purple light.
