Yale Blue is the dark blue color used in association with Yale University.

It has a history dating back to the 1850s, when Yale Crew rowed in blue uniforms.

In 1894, Yale officially adopted "dark blue" as its color, and in 1901, it specified that it should match the color of the University of Oxford.

However, Yale Blue is now lighter than Oxford Blue, and has a hue of 211.6°, a saturation of 81.4%, and a lightness of 31.6%.

Yale Blue is also used by other universities and institutions that have connections to Yale, such as the University of California, Berkeley, Pomona College, and Duke University.

It is deeply ingrained in the culture of the university and is the most appropriate base or accent color for projects originating from Yale.

Yale Blue can be printed as a spot color or as a process color, and requires an inline application of varnish or aqueous coating to prevent "bronzing".

This color has a hexadecimal code of #0F4D92 and an RGB code of 15, 77, 146.

Yale Blue is a warm color and belongs to the color family of sky blue.
