Matthew 27:28: And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him.

Mark 15:17: And they clothed Him with purple; and they twisted a crown of thorns, put it on His head,
John 19:2: And the soldiers twisted a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and they put on Him a purple robe.

Matthew says that the color of Jesus' robe was scarlet, but Mark and John say that the color of Jesus' robe was purple.

The Hebrew word translated as 'purple' can simply refer to a type of dye, with a range of colors that includes scarlet.1
