Where does one colour stop and another begin?
At what point does ‘Cerulean’ become ‘Aqua’? And ‘Scarlet’ become ‘Cerise’?
Who determines such things?
Crayola, amongst other authorities, apparently.
And if you’re selling crayons, then the more colours that exist, the more crayons you sell, the more profit you make.
As explained eloquently by this infographic.
