Unable to change navigation bar color

There are two ways to do this. You can either modify the appearance proxy that you have set up in the AppDelegate for the whole app, or you can modify the individual navigationbar for the particular screen.

When you dismiss the view - you need to reset the barTintColor in the viewWillDisappear.

override func viewWillAppear(animated: Bool) {

// Set to new colour for whole app
UINavigationBar.appearance().barTintColor = UIColor.blueColor()

// Or, Set to new colour for just this navigation bar
self.navigationController?.navigationBar.barTintColor = UIColor.blueColor()

override func viewWillDisappear(animated: Bool) {

//Revert to old colour, whole app
UINavigationBar.appearance().barTintColor = UIColor.redColor()

//Revert to old colour, just this navigation bar
self.navigationController?.navigationBar.barTintColor = UIColor.redColor()
