The standard practice is to call it gold, but a vocal minority insist on yellow. I myself think it is rediculous to call that color gold, since that is the name of a distinct color (cf 49ers, Fighting Irishes). I would like to use my platform here at Styleforum to change said practice at least in the United States of America let's from now on just call that color yellow.

(In the town where I grew up, the school's colors were purple and "gold" i.e., yellow. When I was a youngster I always said "purple and yellow" and my mother always corrected me said "No no, that is purple and gold!" I never understood that convention, even dating back to my earliest years.)

(I will also add that when I was a youngster I described certain other human beings as having yellow hair didn't understand why I should call them by the fancy word of "blonde.")

EDIT: Just realized that my car is pert near exactly the color of the old St. Louis Rams pantalones and yet ain't no one even once referred to my car as gold.

Having grown up a Steelers fan (and to a later and lesser extent a Rams fan) I've always thought and said "yellow".
As a 7-year attendee of UCB, I also think of Cal as wearing yellow, although I know it's frequently referred to as "gold".
Perhaps we could avoid strife and promote unity by simply calling it "America" instead.

i've always thought it adorbs how all of the major Pittsburgh sports franchises coordinate their colors (pertinent to convo since one of the colors is yellow/gold)

LSU teams are (or were) alternatively"The Purple and Gold" but since they are Mardi Gras colors it is definitely gold

post #82176 of 85747

so do you consider the lakers purple and yellow ?

or

purple and gold?

 

cause i'd definitely say gold.

 

(also a coordinated city color minnesota vikings are the same scheme)

This is not even a debate for Pittsburgh. (Everybody else is wrong, though.)

(Eh, I guess this is more of a debate than I thought... Why am I wasting time researching this?)

It's a heraldic thing, no? "Yellow" = "Argent"?

I believe that in the spirit of American simplicity, we should just go with yellow. Gold is not as catchy in the hook of a rap song.

I must not have been paying attention in the grocery store, as I have bought creamy peanut butter instead of chunky.

Sign up for the big 3 delivery managers.(theyre free) Fedex and UPS both email when things ship. I dont pay attention to other shipping notices. The usps manager does kinda suck though.
