Indigo was added to Crayola assortments in 1999. It is the color between blue and violet and named after the Indigo dye derived from the plant, Indigofera tinctoria, a tropical plant of the pea family! It is known as Independence Indigo, the color for Pennsylvania in the “State Crayon Collection.
My photo for the challenge was taken while walking to the Versailles Palace or Royal Chateau, in Versailles, France. It was pouring so we diverted from our walk to buy umbrellas. Then we passed this lovely Indigo colored pub. Do you see the words, Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity on the front of the pub? It must be their Independence Indigo too!
This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
