In the past, I was a privilege

But now I am like everyone else

You can't describe me to someone who can't see

I can be a warning

I can also be symbolising the thing most people seek

I am one of the three, yet there are many more.

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ For future puzzles I advise you don't do so many riddles. They are looked down upon more often than not and are hard to write good ones without them being too broad or too easy $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Aug 18 '16 at 20:31

  • $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil, I guess today I had some muse for such riddles. I will try thinking of different types of puzzles. I am dry for now. :) $\endgroup$ – Maria Deleva Aug 18 '16 at 20:33

I think you are

the colour red.

In the past, I was a privilege

Purple, a specific red, was reserved for high nobles.

But now I am like everyone else

This is no longer the case.

You can't describe me to someone who can't see

Colours cannot be described to a blind, as they only exist as visual perception.

I can be a warning

Red is a warning colour.

I can also be symbolising the thing most people seek

Love is associated to the colour red.

I am one of the three, yet there are many more.

Red is one of the three primary colours, but there are of course many more than three colours.
