第34回 Ultramarine blue
Today, I’d like to talk to you about our schools colour. Do you know what it is? Well, it is the title of today’s “Listen Up” which is “Ultramarine blue. Let’s take a look at the word in parts. “Ultra” in this case means “beyond” “marine” means “the sea” and blue is the color blue. So, we can read “Ultramarine blue” as “beyond the sea blue”. This is because pigment used to make the color was imported into Europe from mines in Afghanistan during the 14th and 15th centuries. From Europe, Afghanistan is certainly “beyond the sea”!
