Hex colour reference: #c5d0e6
A colourful note: this pale blue-lilac shade, known as periwinkle, is named after the flowers of the lesser periwinkle or myrtle herb.
The first recorded use of periwinkle as a colour name in English was in 1895. It appeared as a Crayola crayon in 1958 and is still in existence.
