Maroon (#800000) is a highly saturated and warm shade of red commonly associated with intense (74.3% match), bold (73.8% match), and forceful (73.6% match). When Maroon is combined with Eerie Black, it appears forceful and tropical. When joined with Black, the mood becomes more intense. When Maroon is added to White, it evokes forceful and intense feelings. When paired with its complementary color #007F80, a less saturated variant of the shade "Teal", it can convey forceful or solemn emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #007F00 (a shade of "Office Green") and #00007F (a shade of "Navy Blue"), the resulting palette becomes warmer than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "dynamic" to the "classic" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a intense and serious atmosphere.
