Since 1958, Medium Yellow has been known as Goldenrod or as Golden Rod, as printed on some of the labels of Crayola crayons. In the “Colors of Washington, DC” series it was known as Presidential Seal Gold and in the “State Crayon Collection” as Cornhusker Gold to represent Nebraska.

Goldenrods are seen in some countries as a sign of good luck or good fortune. Here in the US they are considered weeds, and have been eradicated to reduce allergies. When I was younger goldenrods grew everywhere and I remember seeing them especially in the fall when walking to school.

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
