I have a math equation with a \tag operator.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}
\usepackage{xcolor}

\begin{document}

This is my favorite equality:
\begin{align*}
    \color{red}\sum_{n=1}^\infty\dfrac{1}{n^2}=\dfrac{\pi^2}{6}.\tag{E1}
\end{align*}

\end{document}

I would like to color the tag (E1) in red.

What I did is I added \tag{\textcolor{red}{E1}} but this only colored the E1 without the parentheses.

    You could use \tag* and add the () manually to it – daleif Jul 17 at 11:18

    You could write either \tag*{\textcolor{red}{(E1)}} (as already suggested by @daleif) or \tag*{\color{red}(E1)}. – Mico Jul 17 at 11:28

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}

\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\newtagform{red}{\color{red}(}{)}
\usetagform{red}
\begin{document}

\begin{align*}
   \color{red} \sum_{n=1}^\infty\dfrac{1}{n^2}=\dfrac{\pi^2}{6}.\tag{E1}
\end{align*}


\end{document}

You can redefine the tag

Hope this helps!

CODE with newcommand

    \color{red}\sum_{n=1}^\infty\dfrac{1}{n^2}=\dfrac{\pi^2}{6}.\TAG{E1}
\end{align*}

CODE based on the comments by daleif and Mico
