What is the blue wire on a light switch?

A standard 2-wire illumination circuit is shown in Figure 1. The brown wire is Live (also known as permanent life), which brings the live energy source to the switch. The blue wire is known as l'interruption Live and leads l'energy to light. Interrupt Live is only alive when the switch is turned on (here's its name).
