By the mid-20th century, with the availability of brighter dyes, most people, especially in the United States, began to think of royal blue as a brighter color, and it was this brighter color that was chosen as the web color royal blue. The World Wide Web Consortium has designated the keyword "royalblue" to be this much brighter color, rather than the traditional darker variant that is often regarded as royal blue by older residents of the United Kingdom.
