I'm told that identification of conductors by means of blue insulation is specifically referenced in the code 4 times.
I know of 2.
Anyone else?

See the 2002 NEC Sections 322.120(C); 400.22; 424.35; 504.80(C)

Thanks, Redsy: I fixed the mistake I made, I should have remembered that one because I once got that wrong on a test when the answer was in fact light blue for the grounded conductor in a cord!

Thanks, Joe. It was stumping me.
I had Articles 400 & 504. Couldn't get the others.
BTW
I thk you mistakenly listed 400.23 instead of 400.22
