Cornflower Blue


My colleague Eli decided it was time to join us cool blogging cats and start writing interesting things for y’all to read. 

If I had a prize, I’d give it to the first person who can figure out where his blog title comes from…

    I think Wikipedia wins the contest:

    "The movie Fight Club, based on Palahniuk’s book of the same name, contains a scene where the narrator’s boss asks if a computer icon can be remade in cornflower blue. The narrator also implies that his boss always wears a cornflower blue tie on Tuesdays. Cornflower blue is also the default clear-screen background color in Microsoft XNA, possibly a reference to the movie."

    Good answer!

    I didn’t know about the Fight Club connection, but you’re right, it’s the default background color I was thinking of.

    You sure you aren’t referring to the national cornflower blue color that Finland and Estonia use? I’m pretty sure they thought of it first 😉
