Navy (#010080) is a highly saturated and fairly neutral and balanced shade of blue commonly associated with vibrance (86.8% match), dazzle (84.4% match), and blue raspberry (83.6% match). When navy is combined with white, it appears vibrance and peppermint. When joined with eerie black, the mood becomes more ocean wave. When navy is added to maximum red, it evokes vibrance and dazzle feelings. When paired with its complementary color #7F8000, a less saturated variant of the shade "olive", it can convey cinnamon or ocean water emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #7F0000 (a shade of "maroon") and #007F00 (a shade of "office green"), the resulting palette becomes cooler than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "dynamic" to the "classic" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a unhappy and wrong atmosphere.
