Mimosa yellow

"Mimosa yellow picked to ease gloom in 2009. Enough gloom and doom; there's a prediction from a leading color source that cheerful and sunny yellow will be the influential color of 2009.
Pantone, which provides color standards to design industries, specifically cites "mimosa", a vibrant shade of yellow illustrated by the flowers of some mimosa trees as well as the brunch favorite cocktail, as it's top shade of the new year. In general, Pantone expects the public to embrace many tones of the optimistic yellow."
