Is there a way to obtain a colorant from color name provided as a Symbol?

When using plotting packages in julia, colors can be passed using a symbol of their name e.g. :red.
After searching in Makie’s source code, I could not find where the conversion from Symbol to colorant was done.

At the moment, it feels like the most direct way to do that is Colors.color_names[String(color_symbol)], is it ? It feels quite awkward to do it this way, I would have expected that a Color(color_symbol::Symbol) existed.
