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

I hoped it would, if anyone would know it'd have to be you! :cool:

Thanks for all the input. I've seen bright red colors called scarlet (which is what it is pretty much), maroon-ish colors called scarlet, and pinkish reds called scarlet. Soooo confusing! :flowers:

EDIT: Just remembered something, when I was looking at Ben Franklin on school colors/graduation themed things, there is a high school whose colors are scarlet & gray. At Ben Franklin, this was represented as maroon & gray/silver. These things are confusing! :)

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

I never thought to look in the dictionary. :trumpet: Although I have it right next to the puter for "Last Letter of the Word game". :thumbsup:

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:

The Scarlet in Wiki is the colour I have allways thought as scarlet.Honestly,I can't see any brown in it.
The colour chart shows the different shades of red.

Of course you all realize that different monitors will display major differences
in colors even among the exact same models.

Just as different materials, e.g. leather, cotton, silk, and man-made fabrics,
will appear different with exactly the same dyes used.

Totally understandable, its just harder to figure out when they are not named with any color. For instance, the ribbon I buy to make my leis have no color name, you have to figure out the color beforehand and buy the closest to it. So, I guess I will have to return my maroon and just get the regular red. :thumbsup: :flowers:

Yup, I knew that. I discovered that when I was testing the appearance on various computers. I had to change the colors of the navigation buttons because on some monitors they just blended into the background color. Add into the mix people's varying perceptions of color and it gets really wild. I wonder what all those color sites presented in this thread would look on the computers in town: would that dark reddish-brown color suddenly appear a bright vibrant red?

I remember in my stage costuming class taking a strip of fabric that was actually composed of different stripes of fabric types, dipping it into the dye and seeing the incredibly different colors that resulted.

And by the way, DSTM, scarlet as it shows up in Wikipedia on my monitor does look like a nice bright deep rich red.

Or you could get a white ribbon and dye it. Sounds like more work but....

Aren't colours odd?! I have a friend that swears there is only one shade of black, for example.

When I see the sample of the Rit dye 'scarlet', I think 'red' with a healthy mix of orange thrown in - grin.

Always thought of 'scarlet' as that shown but much deeper and richer. :thumbsup:
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

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)


Looking at this site's scarlet on a different computer, it doesn't have quite the brownish cast to it that I saw on my computer at home though there is still a flavor of brown to it. I'd still call it more of a dark maroon rather than scarlet.

I now know more about the color "scarlet" than I ever thought I would.
