This one’s the Arch found in Arches National Park, Utah.
It was only this year that I have learned to appreciate this color, orange.
I have realized that orange gives a certain feeling of brightness and vibrance.
And whenever I look at it, I feel really refreshed. Would you agree on this one?
After all those wonderful orange finds. Here are some facts about the color orange:
1. The colour orange is named after the orange fruit, after the appearance of the ripe fruit. Before this word was introduced to the English-speaking world, the colour was referred to as ġeolurēad (yellow-red).
2. The first recorded use of orange as a colour name in English was in 1512, in a will now filed with the Public Records Office.
3. Orange is the national colour of the Netherlands. The royal family, the House of Orange-Nassau, derives its name in part from its former holding, the principality of Orange. (The title Prince of Orange is still used for the Dutch heir apparent.)
4. Orange is the contrasting colour of blue and is highly visible against a clear sky. Therefore, shades of orange such as safety orange are often used in high visibility clothing and other safety equipment and objects.
5. Due to its brightness, orange is used in the construction industry on road signs and safety jackets to warn passers-by of the pending dangers ahead.
6. Orange is used to promote awareness and prevention of self-injury.
Now we know!
