Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Flamingo Pink
The Crayola color, Flamingo Pink, is a teaser to be sure! The Crayola Color looks neon and almost gaudy! When I looked up the colors of the Flamingo Pink bird there were ranges from the deepest orange to the lightest pink! The color depends on which species you are looking at! Be sure to look at their different bills too!
The American Flamingo is a large species and is the only flamingo that naturally inhabits North America. This could be Flamingo Pink!
The Greater Flaming is rose colored. It is the most common species of the flamingo family and is found in Africa, the Middle East and Europe. This could be Flamingo Pink!
The Lesser Flamingo is a species found in Sub-Saharan Africa and India. This could be Flamingo Pink!
The Chilean Flamingo is a large species closely related to the American Flamingo and Greater Flamingo. It breeds in South America and has been introduced into Germany and the Netherlands. I LOVE the little pink knees! Like all flamingos it lays a single chalky white egg on a mud mound. This could be Flamingo Pink!
The James Flamingo populates in the high altitudes of Peru, Chile, Bolivia, and Argentina. They have bright yellow bills! So this could be Flamingo Pink!
The Andean Flamingo is one of the rarest flamingos in the world. It lives in the Andes Mountains of South America. This flamingo has a pale, pink body with brighter, upper parts and a deep pink, lower neck and breast. It is the only flamingo species with yellow legs and three-toed feet!
So here we are with all the colors of Flamingo Pink! What Flamingo Pink do you like best?
Flamingo Pink was also an alternate color for Carnation Pink in the second “So Big” crayola set. What? Do we start all over with the carnations? Crayola just can’t leave well enough alone it seems!
This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!

I think I like the Lesser Flamingo best. I had no idea there were so many.
I had no idea either! I liked this post very much!
I also used an actual flamingo for ‘flamingo pink,’ I think I agree with AnnetteM, I like the Lesser Flamingo’s soft pink feathers best. My photo’s best color match was a splotch of pink on his bill.
I wondered, when I did that post, if anyone else would do a post about Flamingos. Great minds think alike!
I love how your post shows the many different colors of flamingos 🙂
I had no idea there were so many!
