Oxford Blue is a very dark shade of cyan-blue that is the official colour of the University of Oxford.

It has a hexadecimal code of #002147, which means it is composed of 0% red, 12.94% green and 27.84% blue in the RGB color model.

Oxford Blue was originally chosen by two members of the 1829 Boat Race crew, who used the Christ Church guernsey as their pattern, but with a broader and darker blue stripe.

The colour itself is said to have been borrowed from Harrow Blue, as the creators of The Boat Race attended Harrow School.

Similarly, Cambridge Blue is said to have derived from Eton Blue.

Oxford Blue is used by the University of Oxford's combined-colleges (whole-university) leading sport teams, including Oxford Blues (first sides) and Half-Blues (second sides).

In UK rowing, blades consisting only of that colour are used only by these two sides.

However, it is also used in combination with other colours on the blades of various rowing clubs, schools and colleges.

Oxford Blue is also used by some other universities and sports teams around the world, such as the University of Toronto, Penn State University, Georgetown University, University of Michigan, University of California, Berkeley, Toronto Argonauts, Wycombe Wanderers F.C. and others.

Oxford Blue is a colour that represents tradition, excellence and prestige.

It is a colour that is associated with one of the oldest and most renowned universities in the world.
