Well, I'm surprised that anyone would respond to this pure trivia.
Actually, the red light goes on the port side. If you see the red light you must give way for that ship has the right of way. One way to remember is port is red (wine) starboard is green. if you see a ships green light it means you have the right of way.

That old saying "Under the weather" means sick below decks. "On the binnacle list" means the same.
