Thomas Lauderdale was the creator of the band "Pink Martini" in 1994, in Portland, Oregon.

3. Fish with pink flesh

Answer: Salmon

Salmon is a ray-finned fish which is native both to the North Atlantic and the Pacific oceans. It belongs to the family of Salmonidae. It is a very popular consumer fish rich in omega 3 fatty oils, and this makes it one of the most intensively farmed fish.
The pink color of its flesh comes from its diet, both in the wild and in the farms. In the wild it eats krill which is rich in beta-carotene, while the farm-raised salmon eat beta-carotene enriched pellets.
4. Breast cancer awareness symbol

Answer: Pink ribbon

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international campaign to draw awareness to the disease and channel funds towards the research for its early diagnosis, treatment and cure. It is celebrated every year between October 1st and October 31st.

Charlotte Haley, a 68 year old woman whose sister, daughter and granddaughter had breast cancer, was the first to create peach colored ribbons with messages encouraging the wider funding of breast cancer research. In 1993, Estee Lauder Cosmetics created the Breast Cancer Research Foundation which established a pink ribbon as the symbol for the awareness campaign.
5. Office of the President of Argentina

Answer: Casa Rosada

Casa Rosada (Pink House), the seat of the Argentine National Government and the President's office, dominates the eastern part of Plaza de Mayo, the most iconic square of Buenos Aires. Casa Rosada was built on the site of a 1580 Spanish fort and the color is believed to have been chosen in the 19th century by Domingo Sarmiento as a compromise, a mix of the two colors of the rival political parties, the Federales (red) and the Unitarians (white).
6. India's "pink" city, capital of Rajasthan

Answer: Jaipur

Jaipur is the largest city and capital of Rajasthan, a province in Northern India. It is a major tourist attraction and one of the Indian cities in the "Golden Triangle" which includes New Delhi and Agra as tourist destinations. Jaipur is called the Pink City because of the distinctive color of its buildings which were painted pink in 1876 for the visit of then Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII. Architectural highlights in the city include Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds), a palace made out of white and pink sandstone and Jal Mahal (Water Palace), a palace located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake.
7. Signature color of fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli

Answer: Shocking pink

Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1973) was a pioneer French fashion designer. She considered herself an artist more than a dressmaker and she often collaborated with other artists for her designs, most notably with Salvador Dali.

Shocking pink or hot pink was her signature color, one that was inspired by a pink diamond called "TÍte de Belier" (Ram's Head) which belonged to Singer sewing machine heiress Daisy Fellowes, one of her best clients.

Elsa Schiaparelli herself described her pink color as "life-giving, like all the light and the birds and the fish in the world put together, a color of China and Peru but not of the West."
8. Pink-colored confection of fairs and carnivals

Answer: Cotton candy

Cotton candy is an all sugar confection with the addition of food coloring or flavoring. It is a favorite confection in fairs, circuses and festivals and it is sold either on a stick or in a plastic bag. The sugar is heated and spun in a machine which turns it into "glass-like" threads, mostly filled with air and usually either pink or white in color.

It first appeared in Europe in the 19th century and it became very popular after machine-spun sugar was introduced at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, Missouri.
9. Manganese mineral of pink and rose-red color

Answer: Rhodochrosite

Rhodochrosite is a manganese mineral which in its pure form has a rose-red color but when it bonds with impurities it ranges from a deep red to a cinnamon brown. The name comes from the Greek, and it means rose-colored. It is Argentina's national gemstone and Colorado's state mineral. Sometimes it is referred to as "Rosa del Inca" or "Rosinca."
10. Flower that gave the color pink its name

Answer: Dianthus plumarius

Dianthus plumarius is a flower of the family of Caryophyllaceae, same family as the carnation. It is also called common pink, garden pink and wild pink and its color is a deep pink with a darker center. It blooms from May to September.

Conclusion for the color pink: Since pink is a combination of red and white it incorporates characteristics from both colors. It has the passion of red softened by the purity and innocence of white. It is also associated with femininity, romance, caring, calmness and hope, thus the expression "everything is rosy."
