At this point the color purple is synonymous with Prince. So much that musical legend now has an official hue, “Love Symbol # 2.”
According to NPR, the folks over at Pantone, a company responsible for standardizing colors for consistent industry use, decided to honor the late musical genius in the most colorful way:
“While the spectrum of the color purple will still be used in respect to the ‘Purple One,’ Love Symbol #2 will be the official color across the brand he left behind,” a statement reads.
It is being reported that the particular color was inspired by the hue of a Yamaha piano that Prince planned to take on tour before passing away on April 21, 2016. The name Love Symbol #2 is the copyrighted name of his iconic symbol.
Speaking of love symbols…Remember when Sheila E told us about the first time she met Prince?
