Chartreuse green is the color halfway between yellow and green on the RGB color wheel.

Chartreuse green (the web color known as chartreuse since the X11 colors were formulated in 1987 and then renamed the X11 web colors in 1991) is a web color that was named because it looked like the green color of one of the French liqueurs called green chartreuse, made since 1764. Before 1987, this color was called yellow-green, but that name is now used for the web color "yellow-green", a medium dark shade of chartreuse green shown in the color chart below.
