Pantone has officially announced that the color of the year for 2019 is “Living Coral,” otherwise known by its official Pantone code 16-1546. Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute’s annual verdict looks back on the most significant cultural, social, political and technological themes of the past year, recapping it as a color zeitgeist.

“Living Coral” was chosen for 2019 for “Representing the fusion of modern life [...] a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media,” the institution announced. The color is described as an “animated, life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone.”
