Tangerine is a saturated, bold orange hue that aptly describes the exterior of the delicious fruit—the same fruit this fun hue derives its name from. Its hex code is #F28500. Curiously, the iMac G3s were all named named after fruits, and among them was the tangerine.


Like most other orange hues, tangerine is associated with energy, youth, and happiness.

Not surprisingly, tangerine pairs wonderfully with any color you’d associate with a sunset, like yellows, blues, and purples. These palettes are usually cheery and lively. Tangerine also makes a lovely accent when combined with grays and creams, creating a more conservative and elegant look.
