I will +1 the Continental Gatorskins.
The following are the most mentioned tires talked about when puncture resistance comes up (from everything i've been able to read on this board so far):
Michelin Krylion Carbon
-Pretty darned good-
The top two are the absolute best but according to alot of people they sacrifice alot of ride quality and grip. The bottom two are still very puncture resistant (they were designed that way but not as hardcore as the Marathon or Armadillo tires) but still retain some very good ride quality and handling nearly as good as most other dedicated road/race tires. The Michelin Pro2Race tires are reported to be puncture resistant, just not quite as much as the ones mentioned above.
I've got the gatorskins (with liners and puncture resistant tubes, but i'm crazy like that) and so far i've been happy. I won't comment on how many flats i've gotten though... It's bad karma.
But if you want colors, the Michelin Speedium tires come in a wide variety (including red) and are currently on sale for $10 on nashbar and performance. Then put some liners and/or thorn resistant tubes and you'll have a pretty flat resistant setup with the colors you want.
