    I guess you could use the enumerations in java or define a custom class having defined fields (in your case - "red", "yellow", ..."etc") and use this class to use any one field among them and you do not check them again.

    I do not know about any operator as such which would allow a variable only a fixed set of values. operators are logically used for mathematical/logical/assignment operations, etc.
