What is the usual way colors are applied to the 3x3 cube. Usually one has Yellow opposite White, Blue opposite Green and Red opposite Orange. In the Wiki database here this is done one way, but on W. Randelshofer's pretty pattern site the colors are applied in the mirror image of what is used here. Which if either would be considered correct?

When I learned cubing I remembered "green oranges" with yellow side up.

This helped me remember the color scheme.
All my cubes follow this color scheme.

Back in the day, I usually heard the non-Japanese called BOY: Blue-Orange-Yellow go clockwise around a corner. I'm not aware of significant usage of the mirror of that color scheme.

Best to stick with the righteous BOY cube. Wouldn't want to mess with a sinister YOB cube. 😀
