How to disable all syntax coloring in Cygwin/bash?

I was able to come up with something, though not sure it's the best or
what I had before. Sorry if this is obvious to most people, but to
get rid of colorized output, I added to my .bashrc:
If $PS1 has terminal color escape codes, then replace that also with
something else, e.g.:
export PS1="\h $ "
