Maybe I am wrong but I don't think that the squid see any colours but mostly the jig shadow. Having said so the red/pink coloured jigs produce more shadow than others. However orange & green are very good jigs.

I prefer pink/red, red heads and occasionally green.....but I personally think that the type of jig and the way you make the jig move makes all the difference. Also other factors - current, conditions of sea & sky (clear or not) etc etc

6. Red and orange lures come into their own in tannin stained waters, as do fluorescent hues.

Greg has deliberately overlooked a key topic here - the use of color combinations, patterns and contrast to increase hook-up rates which can be very significant, so bear that in mind.

well done for that info, however regarding color it is very well explained in that link...Color does make a difference even if squid does not see any color...

looks like Pink and Green are still the top ones mostly used yet

Colour selection seems to be something that should be determined according to the lighting conditions, whether there is more or less light, moon light etc. Colour makes a difference only for the shadows they produce.
