Color the New Year Blue

Classic Blue Is Pantone’s Color of The Year for 2020

The Pantone Color Institute™ has named Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue as Color of The Year for 2020. Classic Blue offers refuge, supports concentration and brings clarity to a weary chaotic world.

A Reminder of Peace, Tranquility and Resilience
Pantone describes this calm, confident and connected hue as an enduring blue highlighting our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.

“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.”—Leatrice Eiseman
