Color Your World – Cerise

Cerise is a deep to vivid reddish pink.

The color name comes from the French word “cerise”, meaning cherry. The word “cherry” itself comes from the Norman cherise.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the first recorded use of cerise as a color name in English was in The Times of November 30, 1858. This date of 1858 as the date of first use of the color name is also mentioned in the 1930 book A Dictionary of Color. However, it was used at least as early as 1845 in a book of crochet patterns.

The color name cerise has been in use for this color since 1993 by Crayola.IMG_4952
