Most of wall plug and other three-phase color codes like this
The white/ blue/ gray wire is "neutral" wire which is fits for silver screw.
The black/ brown/ orange/ red wire is "hot" wire which is deliver power to the receptacle which is connected to brass or bronze-colored screw.
Normally ground wire comes in green color.

Hi There: there are different AC electric wire colour coding standards followed in various parts of the world. The prevalent standards are US, UK and IEC (stands for international electrotechnical commission). IEC codes are: green / yellow for earth. Blue for neutral and brown/black for power. US codes are: Bare/green or yellow for earth, white/grey for neutral, and black/red/brown or orange for power. UK codes are: green / yellow for earth, blue or black for neutral and brown/red/yellow for power. Hope that helps.
