ORANGE TURNS PINK

The city of Orange, NSW declared it would be changing its name to Pink later this year.

“We’re already known throughout the country as Orange, so it’s not a big deal to make the

switch to Pink. It’s only a few shades to the right on the colour spectrum,” Orange Mayor Reg Kidd said.

Caddie Marshall General Manager from Orange 360 believes that the name change will also

support local food producers in the area.

“The old name was so confusing, because we don’t grow Oranges in Orange. We grow Pink

Lady Apples, so the name change will not only boost visitation to the area, it will also

support our growers.”
