The Classic Blue colour is described by Pantone as "a reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection.
Hydrangea, cornflower, iris, buddleia, eryngium, geranium, hyacinth, clematis and delphinium have blue shades that match Pantone's choice.
"Associated with the return of another day, this universal favourite is comfortably embraced."
While this year's colour Living Coral was an "animating and life-affirming", 2020's shade "brings a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit, offering refuge".
Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2020 is ‘Tranquil Dawn’, a soft green that matches Japanese Painted Fern and Lamb’s ears.
