Each style of karate sets its own rules and promotions. In some styles, dark blue is the highest rank. A style could set the brown belt as the highest, but most use the black belt. In traditional karate, the highest possible belt is red.

It depends on the style. In traditional styles, a red belt is the highest you can reach, representing 9th and 10th Dan levels. The 7th and 8th Dan wear a red and white belt.
