9 Types of Electric Blue

 ,
Electric blue is a bright cyan color that approximates the color of blue neon or fluorescent lights. It is also a descriptive term for any blue that glows with intensity. Electric blue was a color name as early as 1845 and is referenced in several mid-19th century novels. This may have been a description of colors seen in lightning as neither light bulbs nor commercial electricity generation existed at this time. Electric blue lights made with neon gas and mercury were invented in 1915. These were commonly used in commercial signs until the 1990s when fluorescent tube lighting went into decline due to innovations such as flat screen TVs that allowed for more dynamic commercial signs. As such, electric blue is particularly associated with the 1980s as this was peak blue neon, particularly in Japan that still has countless neon lights from this era in operation. In the 1980s, electric blue appears in fiction and song as a descriptive term for colors, particularly blue eyes. In contemporary fiction and song it is more likely to be used as an analogy for nostalgia and longing for the past. The following color palette includes electric blue and a few related colors.
