Some tints and shades of green

Varieties of the color green may differ in hue, chroma (also called saturation or intensity) or lightness (or value, tone, or brightness), or in two or three of these qualities. Variations in value are also called tints and shades, a tint being a green or other hue mixed with white, a shade being mixed with black. A large selection of these various colors is shown below.

Green in nature

Main article: Green § In biology

Green is common in nature, especially in plants. Many plants are green mainly because of a complex chemical known as chlorophyll which is involved in photosynthesis.[2] Many shades of green have been named after plants or are related to plants. Due to varying ratios of chlorophylls (and different amounts as well as other plant pigments being present), the plant kingdom exhibits many shades of green in both hue (true color) and value (lightness/darkness). The chlorophylls in living plants have distinctive green colors, while dried or cooked portions of plants are different shades of green due to the chlorophyll molecules losing their inner magnesium ion.

Brunswick green is a common name for green pigments made from copper compounds, although the name has also been used for other formulations that produce a similar hue, such as mixtures of chrome yellow and Prussian blue. The pigment is named after Braunschweig, Germany (also known as Brunswick in English) where it was first manufactured. It is a deep, dark green, which may vary from intense to very dark, almost black.[37]

The first recorded use of brunswick green as a color name in English was in 1764.[38] Another name for this color is English green. The first use of English green as a synonym for brunswick green was in 1923.[39]

"Deep Brunswick green" is commonly recognized as part of the British racing green spectrum, the national auto racing color of the United Kingdom.

A different color, also called "Brunswick green", was the colour for passenger locomotives of the Grouping and then the nationalized British Railways. There were three shades of these colours and they are defined under British Standard BS381C - 225, BS381C - 226, and BS381C - 227 (ordered from lightest to darkest). The Brunswick Green used by the Nationalised British Railways - Western Region for passenger Locomotives was BS381C - 227 (rgb(30:62:46)). RAL6005 is a close substitute to BS381C - 227. A characteristic of these colours was the ease for various railway locations to mix them by using whole pots of primary colours - hence the ability to get reasonably consistent colours with manual mixing half a century and more ago.

The color used by the Pennsylvania Railroad for locomotives was often called "Brunswick green", but officially was termed Dark Green Locomotive Enamel (DGLE). This was a shade of green so dark as to be almost black, but which turned greener with age and weathering as the copper compounds further oxidized.[40]

Celadon /ˈsɛlədɒn/ is a pale greyish shade of green. A glaze of this color is commonly used in Chinese and Korean pottery.[41] It is normally associated with a pale sea-green pigment though the style originally was made with much darker pigments. The pale green pigment came from the artisans who used specific clays and potting techniques to create the style now associated with the name. It was most commonly used in Chinese, Korean and Japanese art and spread to the other Asian cultures. Celadon, as it is known by the west, or Qingci, is an ancient type of Chinese glaze that was particularly favoured by the Song court. These pots have blue-green glazes and are made in elegant shapes and were produced in kilns from all over China. Korean celadon pottery has been described by ancient Chinese artisans as having a quiet elegance whose color is "beyond description," in that it must be experienced to be understood, and its simplicity of form and style has been compared to the spirit of Zen Buddhism.[42]

Dartmouth green is the official color of Dartmouth College, adopted in 1866. It was famously chosen after a crew race with a number of other colleges for being "the only decent color that had not been taken already."[43] It is notable for its prominent use as the name of the Dartmouth College athletic team, the Dartmouth Big Green. The Dartmouth athletic teams adopted this new name after the college officially discontinued the use of its unofficial mascot, the Dartmouth Indian, in 1974.

Dartmouth High School in Dartmouth, Massachusetts traditionally uses the same colors as Dartmouth College for its athletics teams, which still retain the Indian nickname and mascot.

Dartmouth green and white are the main colors of Lithuanian basketball club Žalgiris Kaunas.

Emerald, also called emerald green, is a tone of green that is particularly light and bright, with a faint bluish cast. The name derives from the typical appearance of the gemstone emerald.

The first recorded use of emerald as a color name in English was in 1598.[45]

Ireland is sometimes referred to as the Emerald Isle due to its lush greenery. The May birthstone is Emerald. Seattle is sometimes referred to as the Emerald City, because its abundant rainfall creates lush vegetation. In the middle ages, The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus was believed to contain the secrets of alchemy. "Emerald City", from the fictional story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum, is a city where everything from food to people are emerald green. However, it is revealed at the end of the story that everything in the city is normal colored, but the glasses everyone wears are emerald tinted. The Green Zone in Baghdad is sometimes ironically and cynically referred to as The Emerald City.[46] The Emerald Buddha is a figurine of the sitting Buddha, made of green jade (rather than emerald), clothed in gold, and about 45 cm tall. It is kept in the Chapel of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew) on the grounds of the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The Emerald Triangle refers to the three counties of Mendocino, Humboldt, and Trinity in Northern California, United States[47] because these three counties are the biggest marijuana producing counties in California and also the USA.[47] A county-commissioned study reports pot accounts for up to two-thirds of the economy of Mendocino.[47] Emerald Cities: Urban Sustainability and Economic Development is a book published in 2010 by Joan Fitzgerald, director of the Law, Policy and Society Program at Northeastern University, about ecologically sustainable city planning.

Feldgrau (field grey) was the color of the field uniform of the German Army from late 1907 until 1945, and of some post-war uniforms of the West German Bundeswehr and the East German NVA armies. Metaphorically, Feldgrau used to refer to the armies of Germany (the Imperial German Army and the Heer [army] component of the Reichswehr and the Wehrmacht).

The word feldgrau means "field grey", and by World War I the color was a light grey-green, though there is no specific color, rather a color range of greys to browns, that was one of the first standardized uniforms suitable to the age of smokeless gunpowder. Formerly, the Germans wore a Prussian blue shade similar to that of the French.

Sweden used a very similar color for infantry uniforms, for example the grey m/1923 and later on grey-green as the German ones. The last uniform to use the color was the woollen m/58 winter uniform.

The Chilean Army also wears a full dress uniform in Feldgrau.

Harlequin is a color described as being located between green and yellow (closer to green than to yellow) on the color wheel. On color plate 17 in the 1930 book A Dictionary of Color (see reference below), the color harlequin is shown as being a highly saturated rich color at a position 3/4 of the way between green and yellow (closer to green than to yellow). Thus in modern color terminology, harlequin is the color halfway between green and chartreuse green on the RGB color wheel.

The first recorded use of harlequin as a color name in English was in 1923.[52]

Harlequin is a pure spectral color at approximately 552 nanometers on the visible spectrum when plotted on the CIE chromaticity diagram.

Silver Patron tequila is sold in harlequin colored boxes.

Harlequin is also an adjective used to describe something that is colored in a pattern, usually a diamond shaped pattern.[53] similar to the dress traditionally associated to Harlequins. Similarly, it can mean anything multicolored or prismatic, such as opals or other precious gems which are highly variegated in color & hue. In the early 2000s, a Harlequin Color paint was invented for automobiles that appears different colors from different angles of view.

The color rifle green is displayed at right.

The source of this color is the "Pantone Textile Paper eXtended (TPX)" color list, color #19-0419 TPX—Rifle green.[70]

The first recorded use of rifle green as a color name in English was in 1858.[71]

"Rifle green" is so named from the distinctive color of the uniform of rifle regiments (a form of light infantry) of a number of European armies, and is still used as such by rifle regiments in many Commonwealth armies, such as The Rifles and Royal Gurkha Rifles of the British Army.

Rifle green was originally adopted by rifle regiments in the 18th Century. As the traditional role of riflemen was that of marksmen and skirmishers who attacked behind the cover of trees, a dark green uniform was adopted as an early form of camouflage, as opposed to the colorful uniforms worn by other soldiers of the period.

Rifle green was the official uniform color of the Canadian Forces (CF) after unification; it was thereafter generally referred to as "CF green"; indeed, the Service Dress uniform of the day was referred to as "CF greens". After the introduction of the Distinct Environmental Uniform (DEU), rifle green remained as the uniform color of the winter Land Environment DEU; a short-lived tan uniform was worn in summer. After the demise of the tans, the rifle green DEU was worn year-round. Rifle Green was also the color of the uniform worn by the Northern Irish Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) until 2001 where the RUC was renamed the PSNI and while the uniform color remained the same, terminology changed to "bottle green".[72]

Rifle green is 19–0419 TPX in the Pantone palette, or hex code 444C38 in the sRGB color space, as shown above.
