Pantone Honors Prince with Official Purple Shade


The Pantone Color Institute and Prince's estate have created a custom shade of purple to honor the legendary singer. The color purple has been synonymous with Prince throughout his career, from his clothing to his iconic film "Purple Rain." According to Pantone, the new hue represented by Prince's "Love Symbol #2" was inspired by his custom-made Yamaha piano which was originally scheduled to go on tour with the performer before his untimely passing in April 2016.
