In the TV-series Lucifer, Lucifer used to have wings and they are later revealed to be of bright white colour. But his brother had blackish wings. Is it due to his skin colour or is there any significance to it? Is there any explanation of it in comics or is it based on some Catholic beliefs?

    Lucifer doesn't borrow heavily from the comics. Comic Amenadiel is white with white wings and nothing like the Show Amenadiel. – cde Jun 14 '16 at 19:05

    Yes, hence the comment letting you know that it doesn't borrow much from the comics. – cde Jun 15 '16 at 15:31

It's because of Amenadiel being black, Uriel and Lucifer's wings are white as his skin too.

As you can see they are white:

Lucifer Wings

And Uriel are white too, with a bit of brown but it can be shadows illusion:

Uriel Wings

We don't have proofs until now, so it's a big probability of being by skin colour. Perhaps, I have another suggestion that's because of Amenadiel being a warrior and Uriel and Lucifer don't.

    By that logic my wings will be pale yellow if I become angel ;D – Ankit Sharma Oct 28 '16 at 11:35

I suppose it's skin colour. For the comics, amenediel is White, with long Gray hair and White wings. I suppose the show is trying to be racially equal
