Color is a particular spectrum contained in a perfect light ( white ). The identity of a color is determined by the wavelengths of the light. Human can only receive the color wavelengths from 380 until 780 nanometers . In optical equipment , color can also mean the interpretation of a box against mixture of three primary color of light such as red , green , and blue. They’re combine in particular composition. Like if you combine red color with blue color , it will make purple color interpretation.

In fine arts , color can mean certain reflection of light that are affected by the pigments founds on the surface of the object. For example combining magenta and cyan pigment with proper proportion will produce red like sensation. Each color give a certain impression and identity according to the observer’s social condition . For example white will give the impression of holy and cold in the west because associated with snow. While in the most eastern countries the color of white gives the impression of death and very frightening because it’s associated with the shroud.

This color Is mixture of all three components of color at once , but not exactly the same composition .the second one is Contrast or complementary of colors, contrast or complementary color are color that impressed opposite one another. Contrast color can be obtained from the opposite color ( cut the midpoint of the triangle ) consisting of the primary color and secondary colors. But it is also possible to form a color contrast by processing the value or purity of the colors. For the example of contrast colors are red with green , yellow with purple , and blue with orange. The third of he colors is the hot colors, which means the color groups in the semi circle range inside the colors circle form red to yellow . this colors become some symbolic color like yellow for cheerful ,orange for spirit ,and red for anger and so on . the hot colors impress a  long distance. And the last one is the cold colors. Usually the cold colors contain the color that had in the semi circle range form green to purple . this color becomes symbols to like the hot color. Green one for softness symbols, blue for cool , and purple for comfortable , and so on .  the cold colors impress for near distance. [1]

The results of 30,000 people in 100 countries were then combined to find out which was the most popular, and the shade of Miss Marrs was closest to the overall consensus.But color experts say although the shade has been called green, it is not wrong to see it as blue.Peter Giles, the color advisor of Farrow & Ball, said: “It’s almost colored teal.We have a color called Vardo that is richer than that but it’s definitely livelier and brighter, you can almost say it (Marrs Green) is more aqua color.

“It’s one that can be green or blue depending on who you’re asking”.

Miss Marrs went to Hull yesterday to celebrate the launch of a new color in a downtown pop-up shop where famous British brands such as bags from Cambridge Satchel Company and Anglepoise lamps are reproduced in new colors.By coincidence, the color was announced by Hull’s 2017 Chief Executive Martin Green.

“I know about it through a friend who showed me the website – it’s like a rainbow where you just pick your favorite colors,”

said Miss Marrs, who now works as a cultural producer at Leisure & Culture Dundee.

“It was back at the beginning of this year and I had quite forgotten it until I was on a boat on the Tay River in my hometown of Dundee, and there were lots of beautiful green and green tones – some very ash but some really bright and vibrant , deep and rich dancing in the water.”

So when I got home after being out on the water, I made a cup of tea and sat down to choose the perfect color.I always liked the colors in the green / blue teal family.

“It feels really amazing It’s an absolute privilege to have a color named after me It’s been a real experience but very special and very abundant at times I can see we have to redecorate.”
