Pedestrian crossing signal in Portland, Oregon. The dont walk legend is displayed in Portland Orange.

Portland Orange is the color of light emitted by the dont walk phase of pedestrian crossing signals in the U.S. and Canada. Its chromaticity is specified by the Institute of Transportation Engineers in that body's technical standards,[1] and its application is stipulated in the U.S. Federal Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.[2] Various jurisdictional standards also require Portland Orange for don't-walk signs.[3]

International application[edit]

Portland Orange is generally not used outside the United States and Canada, and is not seen in Quebec. In most of the world, red is used for the dont walk symbol instead of Portland Orange.
