Violet. Purple. Sort of confusing that violet and purple are almost exactly the same. Also violets are blue. Oranges are orange, so why are violets not violet? Violet/purple is also the color of royalty, also a color I did not wear before coming to Kenyon. As a kid none of my friends thought the sports teams that wore purple were very impressive. When the Browns left Ohio and became the Ravens it was a double blow to my fourth grade class. Our football team left, and they switched their colors to purple. C'mon. The high school football team was blue and gold, we always got beat by the team that wore violet.
