Olive (#808000) is a highly saturated and warm shade of yellow commonly associated with complex (61.5% match), young (61.5% match), and grand (61.3% match). When Olive is combined with Graphite Gray, it appears grand and dignified. When joined with Dark Olive Drab, the mood becomes more dapper. When Olive is added to Eerie Black, it evokes elaborate and reasonable feelings. When paired with its complementary color #000080, a less saturated variant of the shade "Navy Blue", it can convey calm or reasonable emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #007F7F (a shade of "Teal") and #7F007F (a shade of "Purple"), 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 thorough and elaborate atmosphere.
