A colourful note: the joyous pink flamingo colour joined the Crayola range in 1997. It was one of the four new shades that joined the “Special Brightest” collection and it also featured as one of the new shades that were up for naming by the public in the Who’s your Hero competition in Canada. The winner was Lyndsey Boston, who gave that crayon the name of Bradley Boston.
In 1998, it reverted to its original pink flamingo name.The origin of the word flamingo itself is derived from Spanish flamenco, meaning “flame-coloured” and there is no denying that this very powerful shade is a very strong pink version of the flamingo bird’s colouring.
