An interesting development in the Hsieh campaign, visually speaking: they seem to have abandoned the traditional DPP green hue and gone almost blue with an aquamarine/turquoise color that not only distances them from the “old” DPP, a “fresh start”, also closer to the KMT’s blue but still different, and also visually nostalgic as the hue was often used for painting indoors in the 60s and 70s. Very smart choice, I think.
Interesting observation. I was discussing with some Taiwanese people yesterday about how to say lan-lv (藍綠). I could only think of aqua. Yahoo Taiwan dictionary translates turquoise as 藍綠色 – literally green-blue.
I hadn’t been keeping up with all of the ministry websites, so I hadn’t noticed. They seemed to be pretty multicolored last time I checked. This is just the first time I noticed it being used as the “campaign color”.
