Hex colourful reference: #ffcfab
A colourful note: peach is a delicate colour, named after the pale internal flesh of a peach fruit. The first recorded use of this name as a colour in English was in 1588.
This shade appeared as a Crayola crayon in 1903, known as Flesh, but it was renamed as Peach in 1962, probably for social reasons.
It has been a popular colour for interior design, making a strong appearance in Art Deco buildings in the 1920s and 1930s, and it was a very popular shade for bathroom suites when I was buying my first house in the mid-1980s.
It is an important colour in Chinese culture, where the Peach Tree of Immortality, which blooms only once every 3,000 years, is an important concept in the mythology of the Taoist religion.
