Since a belt system was not originally used in Kung Fu but rather adopted from various Japanese systems the colours are more less the same as most Japanese styles. In order of lowest rank to highest rank they usually look something like this:

white belt / no sash - Beginner

yellow belt or sash

gold belt or sash

purple belt or sash

orange belt or sash

green belt or sash

blue belt or sash

brown belt or sash

red belt or sash

black belt or sash - Advanced

Often the purple belt is up closer to black and in some cases the red is after black rather than before like so:

Black Sash - advanced

Red Sash - Master

White Sash - Grand Master

This will vary from school to school

In wushu's case, usually the colour is worn because it matches the uniform.

Where does the word Kung Fu mean?

The rough translation is "skill so refined and perfected, it has become an artform." Take something as mundane as typing; if you can type 450 words per minute without a single mistake, and maintain that pace, then, you have turned typing into an art, you are Picaso with a keyboard. THAT, is "Kung Fu." The term "Kung Fu," even in China, has become widely used to refer to martial arts, although the traditional Chinese term is "Wushu." In the movies, when one character says to another "you have good Kung Fu," one character was saying to another "wow, you worked so hard, you are not merely just skillful; you sir are an ARTIST." However even Chinese audiences were ignorant of the concept of Kung Fu because, see, the idea of "perfection through effort" was restricted largely in philosophical and scholarly circles, and given China's history of oppression, tyranny and poverty, for generations the Chinese public was uneducated and ignorant until the cultural revolution.
