Flyers Official Orange Colour

Just wondering if anyone here can help me. I am looking to get some paint for my man cave and I am can't seem to find the exact colour of orange that the Flyers use. Sorry if this thread has been posted already, but I couldn't find the topic when I searched, and an Internet search hasn't got me an official answer either......

You should check and see if your hardware store (or any in your area) have one of those thingies that can scan a color and then mix paint to match it. Then you can just take a piece of Flyers gear, have them scan it, and make the paint for you.

Benjamin Moore's "Outrageous Orange" is really close.

I'd firstly imagine what an entire wall of that colour would look like. I'd say it'd work better as a trim rather than the main block.

Thanks for the help! I took my Flyers jersey to the Benjamin Moore's and they did take a picture and had one of those thingies that was able to match paint to it. For the record, the paint from Benjamin Moore's that matches it is Electric Orange 2015-10. I did a sample on the wall and it's a bang on match. Thanks again....

Let it dry for a full two days before you decide that. Reds and oranges have a tendency to dramatically change colors after fully dry.

Now that's the way to make your first post! By proclaiming your dedication to the team by painting a wall their colour.
