Forest green refers to a green color said to resemble the color of the trees and other plants in a forest. The first recorded use of forest green as a color name in English was in 1810.
Forest green is one of the school colors of The Evergreen State College, Agincourt Collegiate Institute, Wagner College, Cass Technical High School, The Westminster Schools, Canyon Lake High School, St Robert Catholic High School, Westlake High School, and Mesa Verde High School (Citrus Heights, California).
Forest green is a frequent color used in woodland camouflage. Beyond camo uniforms, soldiers will spray their weapons using a multitude of colors including forest green to what would otherwise be black or wooden material.
Color Your World Challenge
The Color your World challenge will run January through April, for 120 days, with a new Crayola color topic posting each day. Join in daily, or post at your leisure.
Enter your photos, drawings, quotes, poems, stories, anything, as long as it is inspired by the color of the day.
Since this is a daily challenge, I will not have time to compile a link list daily for participant entries, however,
(1) tag your post #cyw or #coloryourworld so others can follow along in the reader,
(2) share your link in the comment section of each color post and
(3) sign up on the home page. When you fill out the form on the home page, a link to your blog will be added at the bottom of that post – that way other participants can find all your challenge posts.
