Orchid is a bright rich purple color that is a representation of the color of the flower of some members of the plant family orchidaceae. The first recorded use of orchid as a color name in English was in 1915. In 1987, orchid was included as one of the X11 colors. After the invention of the world wide web in 1991, these became known as the X11 web colors.

Orchid has been a Crayola color from 1949 to the present. It was also known as “Medium Red-Violet” from 1949–1958.
