British racing green, or BRG, is a colour that is associated with the United Kingdom and its motor racing heritage.

It is a dark shade of green, similar to forest green, hunter green, or moss green.

The exact hue of BRG is not precisely defined, but it is generally a deep, rich green with a hint of blue or yellow.

The origin of BRG dates back to the early 20th century, when international motor racing competitions required each country to have a distinctive colour for their cars.

The British team chose green as a tribute to their Irish hosts, who hosted the 1903 Gordon Bennett Cup, a prestigious race that was illegal in Great Britain at the time.

The green colour was also seen as a symbol of luck, hope, and nature.

The first British car to win the race was a Napier & Son, painted in a light olive green.

Over the years, BRG became the official colour of the British racing teams, and was used in various events such as the Grand Prix, the Le Mans, and the Indianapolis 500.

The shade of green varied depending on the car manufacturer, the lighting conditions, and the personal preference of the drivers.

Some of the most famous BRG cars include the Bentley 4½ Litre, the Jaguar D-Type, the Aston Martin DBR1, and the Lotus 49.

Today, BRG is still a popular colour for sports cars, especially those of British origin.

It is seen as a classy and elegant choice, as well as a nod to the history and glory of British motor racing.

BRG is also used in other contexts, such as fashion, design, and military uniforms, to evoke a sense of Britishness, sophistication, and tradition.

BRG is one of the colours in the Pantone Matching System, and has a hexadecimal code of #004225.
