With their choice for the colour of the year, Pantone celebrates the vitality of plants.

The provider of professional colour standards for the design industries, Pantone, has announced PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery as the Pantone Color of the Year selection for 2017; a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Reminiscent of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the attributes of Greenery signal individuals to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.
