Teal Blue

Teal is a medium blue-green (primarily blue) color, similar to cyan. Its name comes from that of a bird—the common teal (Anas crecca)—which presents a similarly colored stripe on its head.

It can be created by mixing blue with green into a white base, or deepened as needed with black or gray.The complementary color of teal is maroon. It is also one of the initial group of 16 HTML/CSS web colors formulated in 1987.

The first recorded use of teal as a color name in English was in 1917.

Teal was a fad color during the 1990s, with, among others, many sports teams adopting the color for their uniforms.

The “orange and teal look” is a trend in 21st-century filmmaking, in which scenes are color graded to emphasize these two complementary colors.  Some of the most orange and blue films of the past 15 years: the Transformers series.
