UCLA Blue is the dark azure color used in association with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). It is described as a deep sky blue and is accompanied by a sun gold, UCLA Gold. Both are colloquially referred to as 'blue and gold'.

UCLA Blue was approved by the Chancellor of UCLA in March 2004.[1]

The hexadecimal value of the color is 536895. UCLA Blue is a Pantone color.

UCLA Blue is used by the school's academic and administrative units, which is different from True Blue adopted by UCLA Athletics.[2] Distinguishing between academic and institutional graphic identities is common at major universities.[3] Still, journalists often refer to the UCLA sports teams' color as "UCLA Blue".[4][5][6][7]
