Why the number in the example is not blue?

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper]{article}
\newtheorem{exmp}{{\color{blue}\bfseries Παράδειγμα}}
\setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{DejaVu Sans}
  • Welcome to TeX.SX. You've put some extra { } around your \color command. Remove them and it works fine :)

  • You're misusing \exmp: it must be called as \begin{exmp}...\end{exmp}.

Wrapping \color in extra { } restricts it to the content inside the brackets. If you want the whole thing in color you need to remove those brackets.

\newtheorem{exmp}{\color{blue}\bfseries Παράδειγμα}
