Color your World: Orange

The colour orange is named after the appearance of the ripe orange fruit. The word comes from the Old French orenge, from the old term for the fruit, pomme d’orenge. That name comes from the Arabic naranj, through the Persian naranj, derived from the Sanskrit  naranga.

The first recorded use of orange as a colour name in English was in 1512.Orange.jpg
