I am trying to recreate this presentation in beamer. I finally made a proper header, but for some reason my itemize items won't change color. Here is a code sample



\renewcommand*\familydefault{\sfdefault} %% Only if the base font of the document is to be sans serif

\definecolor{flatblue}{RGB}{0, 82, 156}



\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
\setbeamercolor*{itemize items}{bg=siva,fg=siva}
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[circle]
\setbeamerfont{frametitle}{family=\sffamily, shape=\upshape}
\setbeamercolor{lower separation line head}{bg=red}


        \draw[white,line width=0.12cm] (-1,6) -- (14,6);
        \draw[siva,line width=0.51cm] (-1,6.31) -- (14,6.31);


\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=crvena}
\vspace{2.6 cm}
\Huge\textcolor{white}{1. INTRODUCTION}\vspace*{-0.3cm}
\Large {\textcolor{white}{This is where a little intro text goes}}

\item First item
\item Second item

The OP found the solution himself; here it is (I post it in his behalf as CW):

\setbeamercolor{item projected}{bg=siva}
\setbeamertemplate{enumerate items}[default]
\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
\setbeamercolor{block title}{fg=siva}
\setbeamercolor{local structure}{fg=siva}
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[circle]
