Why do the adjectives finished with an "á" instead of "é"? ta barva, ty barvy. My answer "červené, žluté, oranžové jsou barvy podzimu." was rejected....

Those are not adjectives. They are nouns in this sentence.

In czech nouns that are colours have a čárka?

red (noun) = červená barva = červená, etc.

Here "červená" is an adjective used as a noun.

The standard ending for a feminine noun like "barva" in the nominative singular is -a, not -é. Cf. "žena".

The standard ending for a "hard" adjective in the feminine singular nominative is -á, not -é.

So -é does not enter the picture here; it is the hard adjective ending for neuter (not feminine) nominative singular.
