A pastel orange-white or yellow-orange color, Navajo White gets its name from its resemblance to the background color of the Navajo Nation flag. The name “Navajo White” is generally used only to refer to the color. Despite the name, the color is not a shade of white but rather yellow or orange. From the 1970s to the 1990s, along with bone, it was one of the standard interior paint colors used in many homes in the United States, and especially apartment complexes. Like Color Bone, it doesn’t easily show cigarette smoke stains or fingerprints. It has fallen out of favor with other shades of off-white, gray and pastels in recent years. In 1989, the “Navajo White” color was added to the X11 color list. As such it has become and is (2019) part of the colors of the web.
