What do the different colors in zone defense mean?

I have been playing Madden for so long, and i honestly never knew. I always figured it was just the size of the zone, but im not sure what it really means. I know there is dark blue, light blue, purple, yellow, and orange (which is QB spy).

What do the colors really mean in zone defense?

yellow is hook zone, dark blue is deep zone, light blue is flat zone, purple is buzz zone.

Dark Blue-deep zone
Light Blue-flat zone
Purple- I think it's called hook? In between deep and flat on the side of the field
Yellow-Middle of the field
Orange-QB Spy

^^^ Eventhough Purple suppose to be hook/curl, the light blue works better with those route.

My question is.........what the hell does RED means? It's the same zone as the yellow right?
