Is there a mapping of ANSI colors to their syntax in a given shell?
For example, in BASH, Blue seems to be Folders and Green seems to be executable files.
Does a list exist for what ANSI colors mean in BASH, SSH, VI, etc.?

No, there is no universal mapping.
~/.dir_colors gives the colors that
ls uses; for everything else, consult the relevant documentation.
