Naranj" is Arabic for ORANGE. It is derived from a Sanskrit word for "fruit approved by elephants." Arab traders brought oranges to Europe around the 11th century CE. The word "orange" most often brings food to mind. It is the color of safety. Orange life vests are easily seen on dark and stormy seas. Always a warm advancing color, orange is the forerunner of the sun. Unlike red and yellow, when deepened, orange becomes brighter instead of darker. It is the Autumn.
