Blue fire?

Why is her fire blue?

why not?

The color of a flame depends on the material being burned. There are lots of fuels that will produce blue flames when burned; the most commonly available one in the household is natural gas. You can look at the flame on your oven or furnace to see a blue flame. Natural gas, or any other pure hydrocarbon such as butane or propane will burn a light blue.

Many ordinary flames (for example, burning wood or paper or candles) are yellow because of the presence of a small amount of sodium atoms in the fuel. Sodium atoms glow yellow very brightly when they are heated; yellow light is their very favorite color to emit (this particular shade of yellow is called the "sodium D line" because of the electron orbits involved in the sodium atoms before and after the light is emitted). Sodium street lights are very very yellow for the same reason.

Other chemicals make flames burn other colors, such as copper turning the flame an ethereal green color.

In the Avatar T.V. show blue fire is more powerful then the regular red/yellow fire. The blue fire is alot hotter and has more concussive force.

Also, her name: Princess Azula could give a reason as to why her fire is blue.

Because in Spanish: Azul means Blue.
Maybe the creators wanted something different.

I have to agree with this, Azula was meant to be more powerful than other Firebenders so it only makes sense that her fire is hotter

 Blue flames are more efficient than the standard yellow and orange flames produced by lesser forms of Firebending, channeling more energy into the attack and traveling further without dissipating.

Only Azula has demonstrated blue Firebending (not to be confused with lightning). Blue fire also seems to possess more physical force and produce a concussive effect not seen with normal fire, likely due to the fact that it superheats the air around it as it strikes. As a child Azula's flames were the same color as Zuko's so it is something that he has developed and mastered over time.

Also the blue flames suit her character as very cold and calculating with very little emotion. And as was already meantioned Azula is similar to Azul which is spanish for blue.

Except that all of these other subskills can be performed by a normal bender if they know how, Lava bending can only be done by an Avatar.

More powerful than her uncle, father, that rogue master and the Aang in the Avatar state?

She had potential to be greater than them. She had technical firebending ability that was flawless and she did things with fire that no firebender has doen before. That being said she was not as powerful as Ozai, Iroh, Juong Juong or Aang in the Avatar state at the end of the show.

i always thought it was because she had a higher concentration than anyone else

fire gets hotter the higher its color is up the spectrum so red would be the "coldest" fire while violet would be the hottest...so since Azula's fire burns blue then her fire would be hotter than a normal fire benders red flame

So does that mean that the fire the dragons produced in the episoide where Aang and Zuko went to that island that the fire also has speacial properties?

@danhimself: I thought White was the hottest.
