What coolant to use ??

Im changing my thermostat sometime next week, my question is what coolant type do i require?
My car is a 2003 1.6 TS, the coolant in the tank already is green and as im only topping up what i loose in the stat swap, i need it to be the same.

Is Blue the equivalent to green? or is red? do i need silicate free or silicate based ??? Or is it neither and i need to buy the universal put in anything stuff ?

Please help!!!

Colour is NOT a reliable way to tell the coolant type.

If you don't know when it was last changed, you may as well change the lot.
