Pantone is excited to Announce the Creation of “Love Symbol #2”
Created in honour of international icon, Prince, “Love Symbol #2” is a distinctive blue based purple hue inspired by Prince’s custom-made Yamaha purple piano which was originally scheduled to go on tour with the performer before his untimely passing at the age of 57.
Prince’s association with the colour purple was galvanised in 1984 with the release of the film Purple Rain, along with its Academy Award-winning soundtrack featuring the eponymous song.
With the excitement of red and the tranquility of blue “Love Symbol #2” conveys an aura of mystery, intrigue and unconventionality, a colour that stands apart from all others, something Prince, a performer of distinctive style certainly did.
