أزرق

I wonder if this is the source of the Spanish, Galician, and Portuguese word azul.

The other Romance languages have related words--blau (catalan), bleu (french), blu (italian)--but the Iberian languages have azul. A legacy of 700 years of North African influence in the Iberian peninsula, perhaps.

In Italian (azzurro = light blue - la squdra azzura = the name of the Italian national team of soccer) - In English (azure = bright blue in colour like a cloudless sky) - In french (azur = Couleur d'un bleu intense)

all these adjectives come from the arabic word لازورد - that Arabs had taken before from the perse word لاجورد

the Similarity with أزرق is a simple coincidence
