Upsdell red is a deep medium red, similar to Fire engine red.

Being the colour of several species of bauhinia in Southeast Asia[1], the colour Upsdell Red was coined in remembrance of Reverend G Upsdell[2], the first headmaster for the new site of King George V School in Hong Kong after World War II.

Upsdell red is developed and used with respect to G.Upsdell starting 1963[3], and is used for flags in favor of pure Red in night time ceremonies.
