For what the colours produced are? Pure observation. Of the output
The general theory though is that as the dot clock is an exact multiple
of the colour subcarrier, the frequencies of high-to-low luminance are
easily seen as colour information in a composite signal where both parts
are extracted from one signal.
Looking at a chart of the NTSC I/Q axes, I suppose it's the I axis
that high-low transitions affects most, as that pushes out to red-ish,
or cyan-ish. AIUI, for each axis, the phase determines its "value",
so as high-low-high is 180deg out of phase with low-high-low, you get
the two ends of that axis.

in the pub.
