Carolina blue is a light shade of blue that is associated with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).

It is also sometimes called Tar Heel blue, after the nickname of the UNC sports teams.

The name Carolina blue comes from the popular usage of "Carolina" to refer to the university.

This color has the following color coordinates:
  • HEX: #99BADD

  • RGB:153, 186, 221

  • CMYK: 31, 16, 0, 13

  • HSL: 210.9, 50%, 73.3%

Carolina blue and white have been the sporting colors of UNC since the 1880s, when the football team adopted them as their uniform colors.

Since then, Carolina blue has become a symbol of pride and tradition for UNC fans and alumni.

It is not only used by UNC, but also by other institutions and organizations that have some connection to the university or the state of North Carolina.

For example, the Carolina Panthers, a professional football team based in Charlotte, use a similar shade of blue as one of their team colors.

The Carolina bluebird, a species of songbird native to the eastern and central United States, is named after its bright blue plumage.

This color represents the history, culture, and spirit of UNC and North Carolina.

It evokes a sense of loyalty, excellence, and innovation.
