Blue sparks (incantation unknown) was a charm that precipitated a jet of blue sparks from the tip of the wand. It could also be used offensively as a minor duelling spell. When such blue sparks were produced in large quantities, it was difficult to see or breathe when in the vicinity.
The Order of the Phoenix had initially planned to use these as signals for the Advance Guard when rescuing Harry Potter in August 1995, but eventually decided against it, using red and green instead.
Following the American National Quidditch team's win at the semi-finals of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup against Liechtenstein, red, white and blue sparks filled the air so thickly it was difficult to see or breathe.
