Gold or golden is a yellowish orange color, that is a bit like the color of the metal gold. Although it is considered a color, it is actually not a color.

The web color gold (shown at right) is sometimes referred to as golden in order to distinguish it from the element gold. The use of gold as a color term in traditional usage is more often applied to the color "gold (metallic)" (shown below). The first recorded use of golden as a color name in English was in the year 1300 to refer to the element gold and in 1423 to refer to blonde hair.[1]

Meaning of gold[change | change source]

  • Gold represents accomplishment, as when an athlete wins a Gold Medal at the Olympics or when a musician makes a Gold Record (a record that sells at least 1,000,000 copies).
