Hex colour ref: #95918c
A colourful note: grey is a colour of no colour, lying between black and white, and often being viewed as a symbol of boredom, neutrality and old age; rarely someone’s favourite colour; and rarely an inducer of excitement.
The first recorded use of grey as a color name in English is in AD 700. Grey is the dominant spelling in European English, whilst gray has been the preferred American spelling since approximately 1825.
It became a Crayola colour in 1934, and apparently it is spelled grey on labels, but gray on the boxes.
