Colour of the Year 2008

Pantone has announced its colour of the year for 2008.

Oh — it's blue . . .

Specifically, it’s #18-3943 Blue Iris.

Why? Let’s ask Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute:

"As a reflection of the times, Blue Iris brings together the dependable aspect of blue, underscored by a strong, soul-searching purple cast. Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic.”

#18-3943 Blue Iris takes the crown from 2007 colour of the year, #19-1557 Chili Pepper.

It really makes my other favourite colour "Blue Danube" look like a cactus.
