Not sure about NEC, but the CEC requires:

4-038 Colour of Conductors


(3) Where colour coded circuits are required, the following colour coding shall be used, except in the case of service-entrance cable and insofar as Rules 4-030 , 4-032 , and 6-308 may modify these requirements:
1 phase ac or dc (2-wire) -- 1 black and 1 red or 1 black and 1 white*† (where identified conductor is required);
1 phase ac or dc (3-wire) -- 1 black, 1 red, and 1 white*†;
3 phase ac -- 1 red (phase A), 1 black (phase B), 1 blue (phase C), and 1 white* (where neutral is required)
