Construction Work, San Francisco. (Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange)


Good Evening:

One of San Francisco’s local memes holds that our beloved Giants wear uniforms in Black, Cream, and “Alert Orange,” (CYMK 0, 65, 89, 0) an allegedly brighter but slightly redder version of the standard orange.

Certainly, this shade of orange proves very useful to help ensure safety around construction sits. A color that bright stand out in this “cool grey city of love.”

PS–Wikipedia calls the Giants version of Orange “Giants Orange.” If true, they would not be the first sports team to develop their own custom shade. One possible candidate for first might the University of Columbia, whose version of Light Blue is sometimes called Columbia Blue. But I’m no expert.
