Teal, also called teal blue, is a medium to dark greenish blue color of low saturation; a dark cyan. This color gets its name from the color surrounding the eyes of the common teal, a member of the duck family-- though this theory is doubted among the more educated color scientists.


The first recorded use of Teal as a color name in English was in 1917.

In Windows 95, Windows 98 etc., teal is the standard background color.
