Falu red is a deep red color that is commonly used to paint wooden buildings in Sweden, Finland, and Norway.

It is also known as Falun red or Swedish red paint.

The color originates from the copper mines in Falun, where the waste material was rich in iron oxides, copper compounds, and zinc.

When this material was mixed with water, rye flour, and linseed oil, it formed a durable and weather-resistant paint that protected the wood from decay.

Falu red has been used since the 16th century, and it became especially popular among farmers and peasants in the 19th century, who wanted to imitate the red brick houses of the upper classes.

Falu red is not a uniform color, but varies depending on the amount of burning and grinding of the pigment.

It can range from almost black to a bright light red.

Falu red is still widely used today, as it is seen as a symbol of the Nordic countryside and culture.

It is also associated with the expression "a red cottage and a potato patch", which refers to an idyllic home and life in Finland.

Falu red is a color that reflects the history, nature, and traditions of the Scandinavian people.
