Yes that is correct and totally weird. Took me a while when changing carts to realize why my system was out of phase. Thought my eyesight was failing when I rechecked the connections!

Vvrinc: " Why cartridges have different positions of the color .....? ". Well, one of the answers is because those cartridges have different internal construction, other one is because some manufacturers want that the wires will be crossing between them for a better RFI rejection.
BTW, you have to connect the wires with the color of the pins in the cartridge. If there is no color ( like Koetsu cartridge ) then you have to know that if seen from the front of the headshell ( normal position like if the headshell is already mount on the tonearm ) the code is:
Up headshell wires: Left, white (+) and Right, red (+).
Down headshell wires:Left, blue (-) and Right,green (-).

Yes, the display of colors here is an interesting question. I usually check them against the website https://create.vista.com/colors/palettes/ . And immediately on this site you can see if the color matches one another
