British racing green

British Racing Green or BRG is a similar color to Brunswick Green, Hunter Green, Forest Green or Moss Green (RAL 6005). Named after the green color of international motorsport in the UK. It began with the 1903 Gordon Bennett Cup, held in Ireland (then part of the United Kingdom), as motor racing was illegal on public roads in Britain. As a sign of respect, British cars were painted in clover green. There is no exact shade for BRG; today, the term is used to refer to a spectrum of deep, rich greens. “British Racing Green” in motorsport meant only the color green in general, its application to a special shade developed outside the sport.
