blue is by far the best crayola crayon color. It is a bright blue hue, and can be used to create startling depictions
of the ocean, the american
flag, and blue man group.
It can describe mood as well
In classical times, cerulean
was used to describe blue pigments, particularly mixtures of copper and cobaltous oxides.
The first recorded
use of cerulean
as a color name in English was in 1590.1
The word is probably derived from
the Latin word caeruleus, "dark blue, blue or blue-green", which
in turn probably derives from
of caelum, "heaven, sky".2
