Palatinate (noun; British; origin mid-19th century) – a light purple or lavender colour, as used in certain ceremonial robes of the University and City of Durham, and later also in sporting outfits (Oxford English Dictionary)
RGB: 126, 49, 123
Please note, as of February 2019, Durham University has undergone rebranding, leading to a change of the palatinate colour for a darker purple (RGB: 104, 36, 109, Hex: 68246D). We do not identify this colour as palatinate.
Durham University Computational Chemistry Community has started a Palatinate Challenge – “Scientific articles to feature palatinate both as colour and a word”.
