Default Steelers Color Question

Hey guys...

Im 20, Steelers fan my entire life. I have the pleasure of being born and raised in Pittsburgh. Well, my whole life i was lead to believe that the colors of the diamonds were Yellow, Red, and Blue. I even have a tattoo of the logo. Well, I recently heard that it was in fact orange, and not red. Luckly the red in the tattoo is in between the two colors because I am so dark (100% Italian), but I was wondering who else here thought that it was Red?

~JP101

P.S. I did check this on the official site, and it says that it is indeed orange to represent ore.

P.P.S. GO STEELERS--BEAT DEM CHARGERS!

Looks like a nice red-orange to me... ;) It's kind of like those crayons you get in kindergarten. There were always the middle colors that you could never categorize... yellow-green, red-orange, indigo (purple-blue?)...

And hell no, it ain't yellow... it's GOLD! Do we look like bumblebees to you? I don't think so!

The original STEEL logo was orange but it was changed to Red by the Steelers. If you look at the history of the logo on their website, I believe it says something about the color change.

I hate to admit it but I never noticed that the logo was only on one side of the helmet.
