Color your World: Cornflower

 

Cornflower blue, is a shade of medium-to-light blue containing relatively little green compared to blue. This hue was one of the favorites of the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, his other most-noted favorite being yellow.

The most valuable blue sapphires are called cornflower blue, having a medium-dark violet-blue tone.

Crayola introduced this colour in 1949, in the box of 48 crayons. WikipediaIMG_4303badge
