Lincoln green is a dark shade of green that was originally produced by dyeing wool with woad and yellow weld in the medieval town of Lincoln, England.

It is often associated with the legend of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, who supposedly wore clothes of this color.

Lincoln green has a hexadecimal code of #195905 and RGB values of R:25, G:89, B:5.

It is a warm color with a hue angle of 105.7 degrees, a saturation of 89.4%, and a lightness of 18.4%.

In a CMYK color space, it is composed of 72% cyan, 0% magenta, 94% yellow, and 65% black.

Lincoln green is similar to other shades of olive green, such as forest green and holly green.

It was a popular color for clothing in the Middle Ages, especially among foresters and outlaws.

This color was also worn as a symbol of loyalty to the city of Lincoln, which was a major center of cloth production and trade.

It was more expensive than undyed gray cloth, but cheaper than scarlet, which was dyed with kermes, a costly insect-based dye.

Lincoln green faded over time, giving it a more natural look that blended well with the forest environment.

It was also used as the facing color on the scarlet tunics of the Sherwood Foresters Regiment from 1913 and the full-dress uniform of the Lincolnshire Yeomanry before the First World War.

Lincoln green is a historical and cultural color that reflects the heritage and folklore of England.

It is still used today as a decorative color for buildings, flags, and coats of arms in Lincoln and other places.

Lincoln green is also a name for a variety of plants, such as the Lincoln green apple, the Lincoln green bean, and the Lincoln green onion.

This color evokes a sense of adventure, freedom, and nature.
