This shade of blue is so striking and timeless that it’s been named Pantone’s Color of the Year; Classic Blue, or PANTONE 19-4052. Pantone chose this color for 2020 as it ‘instills calm, confidence, and connection and highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era”.
