    Compare words in 2 columns, formula for unique words in 3rd column

    I am looking for a formula in column C to compare a list of names in column A and B, if there are duplicates only show 1 name and any unique/single names also display. Column A is being pulled in from worksheetA and Column B is being pulled in from worksheetB and column C is in worksheetC. I am thinking this is not possible??

    Column A Column B Column C
    Red Red Red
    Blue Red Blue
    Red Blue Yellow
    Blue Yellow Green
    Green Blue
