I've never heard of ginger as a colour. My dictionary says it's light brownish orange... Uhnn, it's still vague to me. If I saw light orange colour, I'd have no difference from "ginger" colour, I think.

Hello Tomoaki Hachiya,

We have many words to describe colours and it's often more a question of which we use for certain things rather than certain colours. For example, 'ginger' is quite rare apart from when we want to describe the colour of a person's hair or the colour of certain cats. We would not really use it to describe the colour of a car, for example.


Best wishes,
