Papilio blumei, the peacock or green swallowtail, is a butterfly of the family Papilionidae. It is found only on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.

The wingspan is 120–140 mm.

The colours on the wings of some of these butterflies are metallic and are eye catching especially when viewed from a particular angle.

At the centre of the concavity, light is reflected directly but when light hits the edges, it bounces off into forming many layers, which amplifies and rotates the waves of light.
