There’s a special purple color named by Pantone as ‘Love Symbol Number 2’ in honor of the musician Prince. That same purple is possible in Microsoft Word and other Office applications.

Only last year, Pantone teamed with Prince’s estate to announce that PQ 7448C was to be known as Love Symbol Number 2. Now the estate has lodged a trademark application to protect the color.
