    just a tip - i was going to paint my room this colour once, but ended up only doing one wall, painted another wall a much lighter green (almost pastel green), and left the other two walls and ceiling white. It meant that the room was much brighter, and that you could actually appreciate the deep green of the darker wall, as it was better illuminated. if you paint all the walls that dark a green they'll look darker than they really are, unless the room gets a huge amount of light from windows

    This, would advise two walls green and two walls white.

    My wife is saying the same. She is not keen on painting the walls that dark.

    Just a wee tip the dark green will be a very expensive tint
    I would be more inclined to use the crown decorating centre in Leith
    Edina paints on Howe Street in town
    Or Russel paints on the South side round the corner from argyle place on the meadows
    Depending on what side of the town you live

    People are always scared of painting a whole room dark but I would say if your going to do it be brave, go the whole hog and do all walls in the dark green.

    Youll be amazed how good it looks (better than one feature wall for sure IMO) no matter the size of the room.

    Just went to Google this, as I recall it came up before regarding the colour of the paint used at the stadium.

    Turns out I posted here:

    https://www.hibs.net/showthread.php?208886-Hibs-Green

    I guess therefore that that there is a RAL code for the cup final green also?

    It’s name is just ”Exuberance”. No need to add Green as that’s a given.

    They sell it through at the Ibrox club shop.

    It's called 'Green with Envy'.

    Gray Green?

    What top? The 1902 top was a similar colour.

    Also a little off topic I think for 150th we should go back to harp as a badge and maybe even the hoops

    Sounds good to me .
    Remembering our roots is always good.
    We could really milk it and try for Cow and Gate as shirt sponsors.

    As for Shades of Green.
    We have had as many as the classic Johnny Cash song.

    However ,as the old Hibs song goes...

    We're the Boys in Emerald Green
    We're the best you've ever seen .......

    And another old favourite sung many years ago at The Holy Ground.

    "St Patrick's day no more we'll keep .
    The colours can't be seen
    They're hanging men and women for the wearing o' the Green !!

    To paraphrase the old Henry Ford Motors ad...

    You can have any colour you want.
    As long as it is Green !
