The Purple One now has his very own shade thanks to the Pantone Colour Institute, who created a brand new hue in honour of Prince. It just became his colour in 1984 following the release of Purple Rain and as Vice President of Pantone Colour Institute Laure Pressman said, it was only right.

"We are honored to have worked on the development of Love Symbol #2, a distinctive new purple shade created in memory of Prince, ‘the purple one.’ A musical icon known for his artistic brilliance, Love Symbol #2 is emblematic of Prince’s distinctive style. Long associated with the purple family, Love Symbol #2 enables Prince’s unique purple shade to be consistently replicated and maintain the same iconic status as the man himself," she said.
