I have SP 2019 on-prem environment. Created the subsite using Communication Template (As of now I was unable to create the Subsite using Communication Template so I found some trick to create it - Reference URL).
Then I applied the Orange theme on a Site collection, Blue color on Subsites.
The problem was when I visit the root site collection, then the subsite theme color was changing to Orange. This is happened only after visiting the Root site collection (Orange theme). Also, I have checked with Default Team site template same problem occurs

Anyone experienced with this type of Problem or Can anyone suggest any solution for this issue.

From the link you provided, it seems to save site as template to accomplish it.

However, the "Save site as template" action is not supported on Communication sites.

  • I have also checked with default template Team site on Site Collection and Subsite same problem occurred Commented Feb 4, 2020 at 10:47
