Pantone Announces its Colour for 2017: Greenery

The colour green has always had good connotations; green power, green energy, green politics… It’s the colour of all that we find restful, enriching and natural in the world; the very antithesis of the fabricated and human-made. Small wonder then, that colour company Pantone have announced ‘greenery’ (Pantone 15-0343) as THE colour for next year. Described as a ‘tangy yellow-green’, the company has hit upon a shade that encourages us to breathe in richly oxygenated air and get back to nature.

Pantone has chosen Greenery is the colour of hope in a stressful world, as it speaks to the turning of the seasons. ‘Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground.
