New Shade Of Purple Created In Honor Of Prince

When we lose certain musicians, they get a statue...but one very unique musician is getting his own color!

A brand new shade of purple has been created in honor of late great musician Prince...a color which he was VERY much associated with.

He already has his own symbol and now he gets his own color. Pantone Color Institute announced a brand new hue of purple to honor Prince called Love Symbol #2.  

While the spectrum of the color purple will still be used in respect to the “Purple One,” Love Symbol #2, will be the official color across the brand he left behind.”

Here's a full statement made by the institute's president:

“We are honored to have worked on the development of Love Symbol #2, a distinctive new purple shade created in memory of Prince, ‘the purple one.’ A musical icon known for his artistic brilliance, Love Symbol #2 is emblematic of Prince’s distinctive style. Long associated with the purple family, Love Symbol #2 enables Prince’s unique purple shade to be consistently replicated and maintain the same iconic status as the man himself.”
