In history: A colony is what results when one country conquers or otherwise acquires land and sends its own citizens to live there. The colony, or the new group of people, are still ruled by the laws of the old country, and are generally considered to be citizens of the country that took over the new land.

In biology: a colony is a group of organisms (usually animals or bacteria) that live in close quarters for survival or reproduction. Virtually all bacteria live in colonies, and many insect species, like ants and termites, live in colonies, which serve not only as defensive measures, but also as a social network.
