what color is the sun

Is it yellow because from Earth it usually looks yellow to us? Or is it white because the sun gives off all wavelengths of light (white light)? Or is it some other color?

Anecdotally, I had a cool moment where I was looking outside through a tinted window while wearing polarised sunglasses. The sun was behind I guess some thin clouds because I could look at it without it hurting my eyes (I know it could still probably damage them I only looked for like literally 2 seconds). Though all that it looked like a perfectly (I mean perfectly) round white circle, with no way to tell it was a sphere. It just looked like a perfectly white 2D disk in the sky, super weird.
