As expected, the design is based around the famous Cambridge blue. However, we got confused as to its exact hue, and we’re not the only ones - there’s quite a dispute over it. The Cambridge Uni Boat Club blue is different to that of the Rugby Club. Obviously the Boat Club blue is well recognised, however we believe the original blue is that of the Rugby Club, as in 1934 the Boat Club chose to add more yellow to the blue to distinguish themselves.
The orange rust represents the university buildings and tramline. The roads are navy blue, and we've used light tan, sandy, yellow, mustard and ochre colours for the buildings and city stone.
