The problem of “global color” (which arose recently in monopole theory) is generalized to arbitrary gauge theories: a subgroup K of the “unbroken” gauge group G is implementable iff the gauge bundle reduces to the centralizer of K in G. Equivalent implementations correspond to equivalent reductions. Such an action is an internal symmetry for a given configuration iff the Yang-Mills field reduces also. The case of monopoles is worked out in detail.
