This rich, dark blue dates back to the original Crayola crayons in 1903, when it had two names, Dark Blue and Prussian Blue.  The Dark Blue name was discontinued in 1917, and in 1958 Prussian Blue was renamed to the current term, Midnight Blue.

Named after a moon-filled sky at midnight, the first recorded use of midnight as a colour term in English was in 1915.

Midnight blue has, at times, been a popular alternative to black for dinner jackets; in fact, the Duke of Windsor popularised the colour in suits and tuxedos.

    1. Glad you like it. I wasn’t in Berlin for the football but I did enjoy seeing all the preparations. And the rest of Berlin of course!
