Green Or Amber ATC Scopes

I have heard that ATC scopes have a green display and I have heard that they have an amber display. Which is it? Thanks!

I believe that the majority of the radars, especially those used in TRACON, are green. The FAA is supposedly updating these to multi-color displays. I think a few airports have this. I can tell you from experience that Boston isn't one of them!
