The first Interpol notices were issued in 1946, after World War II. They were telegraphic messages sent between member countries to request arrests.
The term "Red Notice" originated in 1959, when Interpol started using coloured notices to indicate different types of alerts. Red was chosen for the highest level notice requesting arrest and extradition.
The Red Notice system was formalized in the 1950s and 60s as Interpol expanded. It provided a coordinated system for circulating arrest warrants globally.
A Red Notice is issued at the request of a member country and is not an international arrest warrant itself. But it alerts police to locate and provisionally arrest a wanted person pending extradition.
Yellow Notices are issued to help locate missing persons, often minors, or to help identify persons who are unable to identify themselves.
Blue Notices are issued to help locate, identify or obtain information on a person of interest in a criminal investigation.
Green Notices warn about a person's criminal activities if that person is considered to be a possible threat to public safety.
The Nobel Prize-winning physicist Niels Bohr once made a trip to Germany to attend a dinner in his honour at the University of Gottingen. On the day before the big event, he visited a boyish German graduate student (Werner Heisenberg) who, age notwithstanding, had already made important advances in the field of quantum mechanics. Bohr shamelessly invited the young man to leave Gottingen and come to Copenhagen to work with him instead.
Word quickly got around and Bohr's big dinner the next day was interrupted by the arrival of two uniformed German policemen—one of whom approached Bohr, gripped him by the shoulder, and loudly announced: "You are under arrest—on the charge of kidnapping small children!"
[The "policemen" of course were mischievous graduate students; Bohr did not go to jail, but Heisenberg did go to Copenhagen.]
