Difference between WETH (red) and Polygon ETH (purple)?

I often see 3 ETH variants on opensea and two of the I do not understand.

First one is the grey ETH icon. This is simply the layer one eth on the etherium network.

Then I see the red ETH icon and the purple ETH icon. The red ETH icon is wrapped ether, so basically its the representation of ETh on the polygon network.

What is the purple ETH icon then? It also is the representation of ETH on polygon? Why we have two?

I currently have ETH on polygon, which shows me the purple icon. Checking my address in polyscan tells me I have WETH. I am confused.
