Bright pink[edit]

Bright Pink (#FF007F)

Bright pink is a maximally saturated tone of pink that is another name for the color rose.

In most Indo-European languages, the color that in English is called pink is called rosa; therefore, the color that is called rose in English is called bright rosa in most European and Latin American countries (using whatever adjective in a particular language means bright in that language).

Ultra pink is a Crayola crayon color formulated in 1972. In 1990 the name was changed in error to shocking pink; however, properly speaking, the name shocking pink should be reserved for only the original shocking pink formulated by Elsa Schiaparelli in 1937 (shown below).

Shocking pink is bold and intense. It takes its name from the tone of pink used in the lettering on the box of the perfume called Shocking,[69] designed by Leonor Fini for the Surrealist fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli in 1937.[70] The color shown at right matches the color of the lettering on the original box.[71][72] This in turn was inspired by the Tête de Belier (Ram's Head), a 17.27ct pink diamond from Cartier owned by heiress Daisy Fellowes,[73] who was one of Schiaparelli's best clients.

Shocking pink kept its name in British English,[69] whereas in North America "This intense magenta was called shocking pink in the 1930s, hot pink in the 1950s, and kinky pink in the 1960s...[it] has appeared in the vanguard of more than one youth revolution...to some it sings, to others it screams".[74] This color is now again called "shocking pink" to distinguish it from the web color hot pink (shown above).

NHRA drag racer Shirley Muldowney was famous for driving a shocking pink dragster.

On its way into the German language, shocking pink lost the "shocking" and is called only "Pink"; the color that is called "pink" in English is called "rosa" in German as it is in most other Indo-European languages. A similar situation happens in Portuguese, but its nomenclature may also arrive intact, becoming "rosa-choque" ("shocking pink"), used more frequently in Brazil. Brazilians may also call all darker and hot tones of pink "rosa-pink", albeit it is obviously ambiguous and discouraged.

Blue, with its intimations of the Virgin Mary, constancy and faithfulness, was thought to be dainty. Why or when that switched is not clear, but as late as the 1930s a significant percentage of adults in one national survey held to that split.
