# What way can someone color this image to illustrate the Four Color Theorem?

I've seen similar questions like this and highly doubt this is a disproof or anything, but I still find solutions to these types of problems very satisfying. Here is the map I developed with my attempt and a black and white one beside it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UKUHvCh1EyXS9vh1j2mFC6ljbwSZ0K4b/view?usp=sharing

I would like someone to color this image to align with the Four Color Theorem, which states that on any map that contains only contiguous shapes, only four colors are required to color the shapes such that no shape bordering one another shares a color. Corners do not count as borders.

• Please clarify your specific problem or provide additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it's hard to tell exactly what you're asking. Jun 2, 2022 at 20:40
• Change the green piece to blue, and change the blue piece in the lower right to white, then only four colours are used. You may be interested in Martin Gardner's 4-colour hoax. Jun 2, 2022 at 20:45
