What color IS the Maersk fleet?


Hi :-)
Would anyone know the RAL number of the typical blue color of the Maersk fleet? I'm looking at RAL5015, but it's not quite there..

Yours sincerely,

Have you written to
Maersk asking for info on the colour?

Hi :-)

Yes, you're right, RAL5019 IS close..
I've asked Maersk, but they have so far not been able to answer any questions what so ever, so I'm not holding my breath. :-D

Try the Lindo Shipyard in Odense, Denmark where the latest ships (Emma Maersk etc) are being built, or Deans Marine, they used to make a model of Maersk container ship.

The results, Maersk blue


Hi guys.

Thanks for all of your replys. :-)
Maersk could actually help, and the RGB color code for Maersk blue is
RGB 76 188 208

The Maersk blue is a mix of four Pantone colors:
Pantone Process Blue 12.30
Pantone Yellow 012 0.10
Pantone Black 1.35
Pantone Trans. white 86.25
Total..... 100.00

How about that. :-)

Yours sincerely, Robert

(In case someone was wondering.)
