Navy blue is a very dark shade of the color blue. Navy blue got its name from the dark blue (contrasted with naval white) worn by officers in the British Royal Navy since 1748 and subsequently adopted by other navies around the world. When this color name, taken from the usual color of the uniforms of sailors, originally came into use in the early 19th century, it was initially called marine blue, but the name of the color soon changed to navy blueAn early use of navy blue as a color name in English was in 1840 though the Oxford English Dictionary has a citation from 1813. In practice, actual blue uniforms of many navies have become outright black in color, in order to combat fading. 

In a RGB color space (made from three colored lights for red, green, and blue), hex #000080 is made of 0% red, 0% green and 50.2% blue. In a CMYK color space (also known as process color, or four color, and used in color printing), hex #000080 is made of 100% cyan, 100% magenta, 0% yellow and 50% black. Navy Blue has a hue angle of 240 degrees, a saturation of 100% and a lightness of 25.1%. The hexadecimal color #000080 has RGB values of R: 0, G: 0, B: 50.2 and CMYK values of C: 1, M: 1, Y: 0, K:0.5. This is the bright tone called “navy blue” by Crayola. This tone of navy blue was formulated as a Crayola color in 1958.
