As seems to be the case routinely with university colors defined as Pantone colors, there are discrepancies in our Pantone orange RGB/HSV/CMYK values in the various articles. The color is defined by Princeton University as Pantone 158, various imitations of which are:
|#E37222||25||85||89||Pantone 158 at Pantone website|
|#F58028||26||84||96||Pantone 158 at Alt source 1 of Pantone swatches|
|#E96B10||25||93||91||Pantone 158 at Alt source 2 of Pantone swatches|
|#E87511||28||93||91||Pantone 158 at Alt source 3 of Pantone swatches, Alt source 4 of Pantone swatches|
|#FF8F00||34||100||100||"Princeton orange" HSV (34, 100, 100) and CMYK (0, 44, 100, 0) previously at Shades of orange and List of colors: N–Z, "Princeton orange" at Encycolorpedia|
|#F46F1B||23||89||96||"Princeton orange" RGB #F46F1B previously at Shades of orange|
|#F58025||26||85||96||"Princeton orange" as rendered in samples at Princeton official website (actually a mix of #F82, with equivalent hues of 26° and 27°)|
The absence of Safety orange from this page is quite "glaring". It is one of the most socially significant shades of orange, it is widely used to signal or mark dangers - everything from traffic cones to hunters' hats are this shade of orange. International orange is a fairly similar shade used for enhanced visibility particularly in aerospace applications. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 21:45, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
I noticed that the specific shade of orange used by the University of Tennessee (UT) is not in the article. From what I understand, the specific shade of orange UT uses is unique to the school. Jay (talk) 03:42, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

|I think we can do better in the description of burnt orange. Although I do not have access to a Dictionary of Color to confirm what they defined as burnt orange, I think the color is misrepresented.
As mentioned in the entry, at least three universities use this color. University of Texas is the only university that has a vastly different shade. I heard the reason for this discrepancy is that UT's color started out as burnt orange, but a mishap in a order left them with their current color of "Texas Orange"  - a bit darker then the traditional burnt orange color. This reason, obviously, needs to be sourced and confirmed.
Aurburn University  and Virginia Tech  both use PMS 158 for their official shade of burnt orange.
What do you think about adding a Texas Orange to the list of orange variations?http://www.branding.unirel.vt.edu/colors.php
