Prince Honored With New Pantone Colour

Music icon Prince has been posthumously honoured with his own custom shade of purple by officials at the Pantone Color Institute.


Prince was often referred to as the “Purple One” thanks to his love of the composite colour, and now global industry experts at Pantone have created the Love Symbol #2 in his memory.

The new hue was inspired by the shade used for his custom-made, signature Yamaha purple piano, which he had planned to take on tour before his shock death in April, 2016.

“The colour purple was synonymous with who Prince was and will always be,” explains Troy Carter, the Entertainment Advisor to the singer’s estate. “This is an incredible way for his legacy to live on forever.”
