Buff is a light brownish yellow color that resembles the color of undyed buffalo leather.

It is also known as a soft yellow or a moderate orange yellow.

It has a HEX code of #F0DC82 and RGB values of 240, 220, 130.

It is a mixture of yellow ochre and white, and it is one of the RYB quaternary colors, along with citron, russet, and olive.

Buff is often used as a natural color for sand, rock, loess, paper, and leather.

It is also a common color for camouflage, as it blends well with the environment.

Many animals and plants have buff markings or features, such as the buff-banded rail, the buff-necked ibis, and the buff fungi.

Some examples of buff color are:
  • The uniform facings of 19th-century New York City volunteer firemen, which inspired the term "buff" for an enthusiast or expert.

  • The tunic worn by English soldiers until the 17th century, which gave rise to the phrase "in the buff" for being naked.

  • The Cotswold stone, a type of limestone that is used for building in the Cotswolds region of England.

  • The Manila paper, a type of paper that is made from hemp or abaca fibers and used for envelopes, folders, and tags.

What are the examples of Buff color in life?

Dark brown leather top - trendy style
Man with a beard and a gold crown on his head and a gold halo around his neck and shoulders
Cat with blue eyes standing on a ledge in front of a cityscape with a clock tower
Space scene with two planets in the center of the image and a star cluster in the background with a bright red

Buff is the color of sand and clay
Of lions' fur and wheat in May
Of parchment paper and leather books
Of camel coats and shepherd's crooks

Buff is a hue that's warm and soft
A subtle shade that blends aloft.
