Oranges growing on a tree

Orange is a color. It is the combination of red and yellow.

Orange is the color of an orange fruit, which is where the name of the color comes from. Before the orange fruit was introduced to England in the 1500s, this color was called red-yellow. The first recorded use of orange as a color name in English was in 1512,[1] in the court of King Henry VIII.

Orange is also one of the few words in the English language that does not rhyme with any other word.

Meaning of orange

  • To the human eye, orange is a very "hot" color, so it gives the feeling of heat. But orange is not as heated a colour as red.
  • Though rare in heraldry, orange is symbolic of strength and endurance.
  • Orange is very easy to see, so people can use it to catch attention and highlight the most important elements of a design. Orange is very effective for promoting food products and toys. On road signs, the color orange means there is construction work ahead. It is used for these signs because it can easily be seen even at night.
  • Dark orange can mean lying or not trusting somebody. Red-orange means desire, sexual passion, pleasure, power, aggression, and thirst for action.
