Pantone Wiki

Pantone's Tiger Lily 17-1456 was the 2004 Color of the Year.

It acknowledges the hipness of orange, with a touch of exoticism.

With inspiration from the natural flower, this warm orange contains the very different red and yellow. One of these colors evokes power and passion while the other is hopeful. This combination creates a bold and rejuvenating color.

This is also the color of Markie Cohen's jacket.
