2021 Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone has two colors of the year for 2021:

PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating.

These two independent colors show how two different elements can come together to support one another. Together they represent the strength and positivity we all need going into this new year; thoughtfulness with a promise of a sunny and friendly future.

“PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power. PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation.” (Pantone)
