# How can I specify a color for example blocks?

I use Beamer with XeLaTeX. I don't use any Beamer themes because it is more useful to specify some parameters manually. I used some colors for all blocks and all blocks have these colors... except the blocks for "Example" environment.

1. Why Example environment do not use my colors?
2. How can I fix it?

System: Windows 7, MikTeX.

MWE: mwe.tex, mwe.pdf

Example and alert blocks use their own colours, which you can set separately.

\documentclass[pdf,10pt,unicode]{beamer}

\definecolor{LightViolet}{RGB}{230,220,255}
\setbeamercolor{frametitle}{bg=LightViolet}

\definecolor{NormalBlue}{RGB}{200,200,255}
\setbeamercolor{block title}{bg=NormalBlue}

\definecolor{LightBlue}{RGB}{220,220,255}
\setbeamercolor{block body}{bg=LightBlue}

\setbeamercolor{block body example}{bg=red!20!white}
\setbeamercolor{block title example}{fg=red, bg=red!40!white}
