The Pantone color of 2020 has been revealed – and this year it is “Classic Blue”!

Pantone describes the color as “a timeless and enduring hue elegant in its simplicity,” noting that it resembles the color of the sky at dusk – darker than sky blue but lighter than midnight blue—with descriptors like “tranquil,” “easily relatable,” and “relaxed.” 

“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
