Is there a formula for within 6 months?

I'm trying to start a formula for this scenario, but am stuck.

I'd like to have the column have a green symbol if the date in another column is within the past 6 months. Once 6 months have passed, I want the symbol to turn red.


Column 1 Column 2

12/12/22. Green Symbol

4/5/21 Red Symbol

    Be sure your [Column 1] is a date-type column and contains actual date values.

    The formula works, except for the part to leave the RYG column blank if there's no data value. Below, I've fixed that with a new formula:

    =IF(ISDATE([Column 1]@row), IF([Column 1]@row < TODAY(-180), "Red", IF([Column 1]@row >= TODAY(-180), "Green", "")), "")
