If you want to see the Peach color everywhere, in the Flesh, look no farther than Italy!  I think it should be the National Color of Italy! Wondering the streets of Monterosso al Mare, in the Cinque Terre region of Italy, the buildings can be found painted in one shade or another of Peach!  It is a variation of the pottery color also found in many of the villages. So it must be a pigment found in the clay of Italy.

In the Crayola Collection, Peach was the name given to Flesh in 1962, to recognize the Civil Rights movement and not only one color as Flesh. It is also known as Pimpernel Peach in the “Scarlet Pimpernel” series and Give Peach a Chance in the “Retro Colors” set. I especially like the name Give Peach a Chance, don’t you?

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