What is the difference between 赤{あか} and 赤色{あかいろ}?

赤色 is just a redundant form of 赤

赤 also has other meanings besides just red, so 赤色 can be used to clarify you're talking about the color red in a confusing situation.

An example in English would be:

the curtains are red

versus

the curtains are of red color
