Rust is an orange-red-brown colour resembling iron oxide.

It is a commonly used colour in stage lighting and appears roughly the same colour as photographic safe-lights when used over a standard tungsten light source.

The first recorded use as a colour name in English was in 1692.

It is named after the resulting phenomenon of the oxidation of iron.

The word ‘rust’ finds its etymological origins in the Proto-Germanic word rusta, which translates to “redness.”

The word is closely related to the term “ruddy,” which also refers to a reddish colouring in an object.
