The color authorities at Pantone have declared that Emerald 17-5641 as the color of 2013! The interesting thing about good ol' Emerald 17-5641 is that current HDTVs can't technically display the color correctly because it fall outside of accepted gamma ranges. The more you know. Take a look at this magnificent color (on a properly calibrated monitor of course).
