Color of the Day

Amaranth?  deep Cerise?  (or Hollywood or Vivid?)  Ruby? Raspberry?

I like that the color amaranth “represents immortality in Western civilization because the name is derived from the name in Greek mythology of a flower that was believed to never die that grew in the abode of the Greek gods on Mount Olympus. Something that is perceived as everlasting may be described by the adjective amaranthine. (The color peach represents immortality in Chinese civilization.)”
