Summary/Abstract: The article states that using colour adjectives as a part of toponyms is a common phenomenon in the onomastic vocabulary of the French and Azerbaijani languages. The object of the analysis of the study is colour toponyms (colour hydronyms, -oikonyms and -oronyms) of the French and Azerbaijani onomastics. It is noted that the differences between the colour toponyms of the compared languages are, on the one hand, their belonging to different language families and, on the other hand, the location of the studied countries in various political and geographical zones. The commonalities discovered in studying the colour-toponymic units of these languages are explained by the universality of some concepts in nature and the primary colour representations in mind.
