Crayola just announced their new color that will be replacing their old yellow shade, "Dandelion". The color is a beautiful shade of blue, but the cool part about this is that this particular shade of blue has never existed before. Sound crazy? Well it kind of is. According to Crayola's website here is the story of how the new color came about:
"When a new blue pigment called YInMn (yin-min) was discovered in 2009 by Mas Subramanian, a chemistry professor at Oregon State University, we were very excited. This discovery is the first new blue pigment in 200 years and is the inspiration for the new blue crayon color."
I'm shook, look at Crayola delivering innovation and science! hahahaha. For real though this is actually so amazing, how often do we get a NEW color!?
Now that this new color has been officially selected to be Crayola's new crayon they need a new name for this shade of blue and they want YOUR help! You can go to this link HERE and submit your vote for it's name! What do you think it should be named??
