LED all-around nav lights in red&white both

Is anyone aware of a supplier of LED all around lights that can project both white and red colors? This would be similar to many small LED bulbs that do both.

Installing different bulbs in a navigation lamp will void its use for navigation.

They are certified as a unit , including the bulb.

Small LEDs are available on the market with three wires, so depending upon which cathode wire you energize, that same LED will put out either red or white color (or others). So what I'm wondering is if anyone know of an all-around navigation light manufacturer that offers such a unit?

Some are three wire but if both leads are engergized you get a totally different colour. Some are two wire and by reversing polarity you get a different colour from the other polarity. But only one can be used at a time.

However all the ones I'm aware of are tiny meant for control panels indicators.

THe CREE led makers might be worth asking as they make high power leds. Maybe they make a suitable bulb.

As for a finished light ,there may be somewhere, but not that I'm aware of.
