Just a quick question...

Is scarlet red more of a regular red color or maroon?

There are too many variations of what people perceive as scarlet red. I've just done a search and there are so many things that are 'scarlet' but not necessarily the same color. :thumbsup:

From what I believe,Scarlet is nothing like Maroon.Scarlet is a bright Red and can have a slight touch of Orange or Yellow.But only ever so slight.Scarlet has always been my favourite shade of Red. :thumbsup:
Maroon shade is too dark for my Taste,It looks like dried Blood.

Thanks! :flowers:

I never realized school colors are so specific. :trumpet:

The older schools here have very basic school colors (ex: red & gold, black & gold, green & gold), but the newer (well not really that new) schools have harder-to-decipher/harder-to-find colors (ex: teal, scarlet, sky blue).

^Ribbon-wise. :thumbsup:

I think teal is a fairly dark green with a faint blueish tinge.

Got that color down, I just can't find that color in the ribbon that I need :flowers: :trumpet:

I was under the impression that ties suck period, regardless of the color! :thumbsup:

I think the closest colour to Teal would be Turquoise.Could be wrong.

Turquoise is much lighter than teal. Pine green would be closer to teal, but teal has more blue in it.

I'm sure you can imagine why this particualr topic caught my eye Tink. :thumbsup:

This is the site I would use most, it actually lists the names of the colors along with the codes. Click on the image of your choice wether it be the reds, greens etc. and you will be directed to the specific chart.
Hex Hub (Named Hexadecimal Color Codes for HTML)

scarlet #8C1717
[color=#8C1717][b][size=4]Scarlett[/size][/b][/color]
Scarlett

And no there aren't any standard default colors. (I don't think)

Nothing more specific, just plaid. I guess they used it as a decorating theme for the senior class dance.

Gosh Scarlett, that scarlet color on my computer looks more like brown to me. I wouldn't even give it the definition of red. To me, scarlet is a deep, bright, and rich red. When I think of scarlet, I think of the scarlet tanager. The appearance of any color changes depending on the lighting. Here are links to a few pictures of the scarlet tanager:

One of the reasons I choose "Scarlett" as my nick. Because I love deep pretty reds.
Needless to say I was disapointed when I first saw it as a brown(ish) red. lol
Thanks for the birdie pics. :thumbsup:

You're welcome. By the way, I just looked up scarlet in my American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language and it says:

A strong to vivid red or reddish orange


It is from this color that scarlet fever got its name: the rash was a bright vivid red, not a brown-like color. I wonder where the idea that scarlet was a dark brownish color came from and when that happened.

That makes sense Orange Blossom, especially since the Scarlet tanager's color is more along the lines of what your dictionary findings were. And I would think that the "Scarlet Tanager" was named long before the Hex Code HTML color chart ever existed. lol

From a Crayola Color chart. The color codes work as BB Code.
