Pantone's Blue Turquoise 15-5217 was the 2005 Color of the Year.

Following the theme of nature from 2004's color, Tiger Lily, Blue Turquoise is the color of the sea and is also used in tapestries and other artworks from the American Southwest.

Blue Turquoise differs from true Turquoise in its gentler tone with less green which makes the color a bit cooler.
