In Table 300.5 column (4), does this column refer to listed conduit, cable or conductors listed for direct burial?

Hi  On an electrical luminaire - outdoor floodlight, could someone please confirm what colour wires are required for use in the US? NFPA 791 states that the correct colour wiring is required but it doesnt say what these colours are. Is there a definitive information source that someone can send me to please.  Thanks
