Prussian blue is a dark blue pigment that is artificially made by oxidation of ferrous ferrocyanide salts.
It has the chemical formula Fe III 4 [Fe II (CN) 6] 3.
It is one of the first pigments made synthetically and was accidentally found in 1704 by two chemists in Berlin.

It is also known as Berlin blue, Brandenburg blue or, in painting, Parisian or Paris blue.
The dark blue uniforms of the Prussian army were dyed this color.
In a RGB color space, Prussian blue has the hexadecimal code #003153 and is composed of 0% red, 19.2% green and 32.5% blue.
The exact hue depends on the method of preparation, which dictates the particle size.
