The Pantone Colour Institute has chosen this shade six times before and executive director Leatrice Eiseman said Classic Blue was selected because it is solid and dependable in a time which requires faith.

She added: “Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.”

The fast-moving progress of technology was credited as the cause for a move towards colours which are soothing and familiar, with classic blue being close to a cobalt blue.
