Coral pink is a creamy orangish pink based on a relatively rare color of corals, the colonial marine invertebrates that form coral reefs. Coral pink appears in an 1912 color standard known as Color Standards and Color Nomenclature and is thought to have originated as a color name in the late 19th century.
