Consider the Feynman diagram below from,
http://hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu...les/expar.html where I assume time runs upwards and the gluon in the graphic runs horizontal and is labled as a green_antiblue gluon. If the gluon runs horizontal can one still label a gluon as being green_antiblue? Only if the gluon is not horizontal can we specifically label it? Hope my question is not too confusing. Thanks for any help!

You could label it blue antigreen as well, the "direction" of color flow can (and has to) be seen from the quarks if the diagram is drawn like this.
