Ultimate Gray and Illuminating are the Pantone Color of the Year for 2021.
"The union of an enduring Ultimate Gray PANTONE 17-5104 with the vibrant yellow Illuminating PANTONE 13-0647 expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit." Pantone
