[[orange:Orange]] is one of the fundamental color terms in English and many other languages. But it has only ''been'' so since recent times, as evidenced that most languages' words for the color orange are identical to the name of the ''fruit'' orange -- in English, this color term usage only dates back to the time of UsefulNotes/HenryVIII. Old English had a word for the color we call orange -- ''ġeolurēad'' -- but it literally meant "[[TheYellowIndex yellow]]-[[PaintTheIndexRed red]]", as it was not yet culturally considered its own color.

As such, though orange is an ubiquitous color term in today's culture, many older concepts that appear orange are referred to as red or yellow. For example, nearly all naturally red hair appears orange. Even "[[PinkTropes pink]]" granite tends to be more orange in color. For similar reasons, orange is still a fairly rare color in emotional symbolism, but has adopted political meanings in regional symbolism, becoming the symbolic color of the Dutch House of Orange-Nassau, of Irish Protestants (as contrasted with green Irish Catholics), of Indian Hindus (as contrasted with green Indian Muslims), and more recently the Orange Revolution of Ukraine. In the few circumstances where orange invokes an emotional symbolism, it tends to inherit traits from both red and yellow, such as red's passion and yellow's energy.
