Princeton orange[edit]

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:

Hex RGB S% V% Source
#E37222 25 85 89 Pantone 158 at Pantone website
#F58028 26 84 96 Pantone 158 at Alt source 1 of Pantone swatches[1][2][3]
#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 #F[45]8[01]2[45], with equivalent hues of 26° and 27°)

I'm going with #F58025, based on use on Princeton's website and proximity to other values. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 09:01, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Safety orange[edit]

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)

UT Orange[edit]

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)
