As you would expect, this dark yellow green color named after the olive fruit stands out from the different shades of green. Its muted, earthy tone has made it a very suitable color for combat. Hence, it is still widely used in military garb, camouflaging and weapons. However, traditionally, this color is used to represent peace.
Olive is the epitome of versatility. It works great alongside any green color palette or neutral colors, carving out easy ways to create a sophisticated and stylish palette. Olive also looks smashing with brighter tones such as purple, blue and orange.
