It is on the color wheel approximately one-third of the way between chartreuse green and bright harlequin (color #3FFF00) (closer to chartreuse green than to bright harlequin). Bright green represents a visual stimulus of 556 nanometers on the visual spectrum as measured on the CIE chromaticity diagram. The X11 color green is somewhat similar to bright green, with a hex triplet of 00FF00, compared to bright green's triplet of 66FF00.

The color bright green may be used to represent bright green environmentalism or the Viridian design movement.

Brunswick green

Brunswick green is a common name for green pigments made from copper compounds, although the name has also been used for other formulations that produce a similar hue, such as mixtures of chrome yellow and Prussian blue. The pigment is named after Braunschweig, Germany (also known as Brunswick in English) where it was first manufactured. It is a deep, dark green, which may vary from intense to very dark, almost black.

"Deep Brunswick green" is commonly recognized as part of the British racing green spectrum, the national auto racing color of the United Kingdom. A similar color, also called "Brunswick green", was the official color for passenger locomotives of the nationalized British Railways. A similar—but slightly brighter—shade was used by the Great Western Railway.

The color used by the Pennsylvania Railroad for locomotives was often called "Brunswick green", but officially was termed Dark Green Locomotive Enamel (DGLE). This was a shade of green so dark as to be almost black, but which turned greener with age and weathering as the copper compounds further oxidized. See PRR equipment colors and painting for more details.[12]

Celadon (pronounced /ˈsɛlədɒn/) is a color that is a pale tint of spring green.

Celadon colored pottery is a specific style of pottery produced in East Asia. It is normally associated with a pale sea-green pigment though the style originally was made with much darker pigments. The pale green pigment came from the artisans who used specific clays and potting techniques to create the style now associated with the name. Chemically, celadon is formed by combining chromium oxide, cadmium yellow, and titanium-zinc white. It was most commonly used in Chinese, Korean and Japanese art and spread to the other Asian cultures. Celadon, as it is known by the west, or Gingci, is an ancient type of Chinese glaze that was particularly favoured by the Song court. These pots have blue-green glazes and are made in elegant shapes and were produced in kilns from all over China. Korean celadon pottery has been described by ancient Chinese artisans as having a quiet elegance whose color is "beyond description," in that it must be experienced to be understood, and its simplicity of form and style has been compared to the spirit of Zen Buddhism.[13]

An emerald color is a shade of green that is particularly light and bright, with a faint bluish cast. The name derives from the typical appearance of the gemstone emerald.

Ireland is sometimes referred to as the Emerald Isle due to its lush greenery. Seattle is sometimes referred to as the Emerald City, because its abundant rainfall creates lush vegetation. "Emerald City", from the fictional story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum, is a city where everything from food to people are emerald green. However, it is revealed at the end of the story that everything in the city is normal colored, but the glasses everyone wears are emerald tinted. The Green Zone in Baghdad is sometimes ironically and cynically referred to as The Emerald City.[15] People with emerald auras are said to be "capable of versatility, ingenuity, and resourcefulness, applied unselfishly".[16] The Emerald Buddha is a figurine of the sitting Buddha, made of green jade (rather than emerald), clothed in gold, and about 45 cm tall. It is kept in the Chapel of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew) on the grounds of the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The Emerald Triangle refers to the three counties of Mendocino, Humboldt, and Trinity in Northern California, United States[17] because these three counties are the biggest marijuana producing counties in California and also the USA.[17] A county-commissioned study reports pot accounts for up to two-thirds of the economy of Mendocino.[17]

Feldgrau (field grey) was the color of the field uniform of the German Army from late 1907 until 1945, and of some post-war uniforms of the West German Bundeswehr and the East German NVA armies.[18] Metaphorically, Feldgrau used to refer to the armies of Germany (the Imperial German Army and the Heer [army] component of the Reichswehr and the Wehrmacht).

The word feldgrau means "field grey", and by World War I the color was a light grey-green, though there is no specific color, rather a color range of greys to browns, that was one of the first standardized uniforms suitable to the age of smokeless gun powder. Formerly, the Germans wore a Prussian blue shade similar to that of the French.

Sweden used a very similar color for infantry uniforms, for example the grey m/1923 and later on grey-green as the German ones. The last uniform to use the color was the woollen m/58 winter uniform.

Harlequin is a color described as being located between green and yellow (closer to green than to yellow) on the pigment color wheel. On color plate 17 in the 1930 book A Dictionary of Color (see reference below), the color harlequin is shown as being a highly saturated rich color at a position 3/4 of the way between green and yellow (closer to green than to yellow). In contemporary color coding, this color—-the color halfway between chartreuse green and green--would be described as color #3FFF00     .

The first recorded use of harlequin as a color name in English was in 1923.[19]

Harlequin is also an adjective used to describe something that is colored in a pattern, usually a diamond shaped pattern.[20] similar to the dress traditionally associated to Harlequins. Similarly, it can mean anything multicolored or prismatic, such as opals or other precious gems which are highly variegated in color & hue. In the early 2000s, a Harlequin Color paint was invented for automobiles that appears different colors from different angles of view.

Rifle green is a particular shade of dark green. It is so named from the distinctive color of the uniform of rifle regiments (a form of light infantry) of a number of European armies, and is still used as such by rifle regiments in many Commonwealth armies, such as The Rifles and Royal Gurkha Rifles of the British Army.

Rifle green was originally adopted by rifle regiments in the 18th Century. As the traditional role of riflemen was that of marksmen and skirmishers who attacked behind the cover of trees, a dark green uniform was adopted as an early form of camouflage, as opposed to the colorful uniforms worn by other soldiers of the period.

Rifle green was the official uniform color of the Canadian Forces (CF) after unification; it was thereafter generally referred to as "CF green"; indeed, the Service Dress uniform of the day was referred to as "CF greens". After the introduction of the Distinct Environmental Uniform (DEU), rifle green remained as the uniform color of the winter Land Environment DEU; a short-lived tan uniform was worn in summer. After the demise of the tans, the rifle green DEU was worn year-round.

Rifle green is 19-0419 TPX in the Pantone palette, or roughly 414833h in the sRGB color space.

Sea green is a shade of light bluish green that resembles the sea floor as seen from the surface.

Sea green is notable for being the emblematic color of the Levellers party in the politics of 1640s England. Leveller supporters would wear a sea-green ribbon, in a similar manner to the present-day red AIDS awareness ribbon. It is also a Crayola crayon color, although the Crayola crayon color is much lighter than the color shown at right (see the List of Crayola crayon colors).
