Orange, a close relative of red, sparks more controversy than any other hue. There is usually strong positive or negative association to orange and true orange generally elicits a stronger "love it" or "hate it" response than other colors. Fun and flamboyant orange radiates warmth and energy. Interestingly, some of the tones of orange such as terra cotta, peach or rust have very broad appeal.
Fun Facts About the Color Orange

The nickname of the Dutch national soccer (football) team is Oranje, the Dutch word for orange.

In the United States Army, orange is the colour of the United States Army Signal Corps.

Safety orange is a color used to set things apart from their surroundings. Safety orange is the color usually used in the United States for traffic cones, stanchions, barrels, and other construction zone marking devices. OSHA(occupational safe & health admin.) requires that certain construction equipment must be painted safety orange.

Orangeyouglad that now we know what orange stands for?

Thanks, Debrah for the spotlight!

    I like your series, Liz...and also your narrative is very interesting about orange.The image is great also.. I remember when I took home ec in my freshman year of high school my teacher told me that orange was my color when picking the color for the dress I would be making..The first dress and last dress that I ever sewed was in the color orange....I loved the color but I did not love sewing:)
