One of the settings within the Protostar template for Joomla 3.0 is Template Colour:

Template Colour
Choose an overall colour for the site template. Default is #08C

In our testing, when changing the template colour the only noticeable change was the color of the links on the page. The color is set to #08C by default, and we changed it to #3aa66c. Below you can see how changing the Template Colour will affect your website's look and feel:
