Tara has 21 emanations according to the prayer of the Buddha Vajradhara known as the Twenty-One Praises of Tara.
Each form of Tara, the mother of all Buddhas, has a specific color and serves a specific function.

The most common thangka paintings of the Twenty-one Taras present Green Tara in the center of the composition.

Green is symbol of action, achievement and considered the primary color of Tara as her green manifestation is always depicted in the center of this thangka.
White represents the appeasing function to overcome sickness and obstacles in life and during the Dharma practice.
Yellow represents the activity of increasing the positive qualities and achieve a long and peaceful life, happiness and success in the practice.
Red is symbol of power and connected to the ability to overcome external forces that cannot be faced through the first two functions.
Black or Blue represents the forceful and wrathful functions and methods to accomplish enlightened purposes that cannot be accomplished through other means.

By reciting the praises of the 21 Taras and meditating on her different emanations the practitioner overcomes all fear and negative feelings that burdens his heart and ultimately reach enlightenment.
