Orange Trivia Questions

1. The colour tangerine takes its name from the fruit of the same name. The fruit itself derives its name from the city of Tangier in which country?

From Quiz
All Things Tangerine

Answer: Morocco

A tangerine is a small mandarin orange with a loose skin. Its name comes from the city of Tangier, a port in northwest Morocco, where the fruit was first grown.

2. Orange can refer to both a color and and a fruit. In English, which usage came first - orange the color, or orange the fruit?

From Quiz All Things Orange

Answer: Orange the fruit

The word orange, meaning a fruit, appeared in English as far back as the 14th century. Orange as a color is first recorded in 1512. The word orange came into English as a borrowing from the Old French "orenge" via the Arabic "naranj," which, in turn, came from the Persian "narang," which was derived from the Sanskrit "naranga," meaning "orange tree." In case anyone is interested, the process by which a word adds or loses an initial letter (in this case the "n") is called metanalysis.

3. In kindergarten I first learned to paint, and every stick figure I drew wore orange pants. What two colors did I mix to create my orange pantaloons?

Orange is the color located between red and yellow on the light spectrum. The term orange is derived from the citrus fruit that carries the same name. In French, the orange is called pomme d'orenge and in Arabic naranj.

Orange is a secondary color because it is made by mixing red and yellow, which are two of the primary colors (the other is blue). The other secondary colors are green and purple. Yellow, red, and orange are called warm colors, because they are associated with heat.

12. The color orange makes very rare appearances in British heraldry. When it does, it is not called orange, but by another name. What is it?

From Quiz All Things Orange

Answer: Tenne

Tenne (also known as tenné or tawny) is an orange or orange-brown color sometimes found in European heraldry, but it is very rare in Britain. It is sometimes called a "stain" rather than a "tincture," as the main colors are. The few times it appears in British heraldry are almost always as a livery color, and sometimes as the color of supporters. This may be because tenne was a color used in the "abatement" of arms, a series of charges used to denote cowardice or other transgressions. It is more common in continental European heraldry, and is popular in South African heraldry and in the United States.

19. Which European country's royal family is sometimes known as "the House of Orange"?

From Quiz All Things Orange

Answer: The Netherlands

The rulers of the Netherlands are descendants of William I, Prince of Orange (1533 -1584), who was the eldest son of William, Count of Nassau. Nassau was a German duchy in what is now Hesse, Germany. When his cousin, René of Châlon, died childless in 1544, William inherited his titles, which included Prince of Orange. Orange was a principality in southwestern France. So the Dutch royal family are actually Germans who take their name from a place in France. England was briefly ruled by the House of Orange when Mary, the daughter of James II, married yet another William of Orange. After deposing James in what was called "the Glorious Revolution," the couple ruled jointly as Mary II and William III. They had no children, so upon William's death in 1702, the throne passed to his sister-in-law, Queen Anne.
