Pantone creates shade of purple named for Prince symbol

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK, NY -

(AP) - A shade of purple inspired by the late superstar Prince and his custom-made Yamaha piano was announced Monday by the icon's estate.
    
The royal hue created by the Pantone Color Institute was dubbed "Love Symbol #2," paying tribute to the graphic Prince began using as his name in 1993 in a testy battle with Warner Bros. Records over ownership of the master recordings of some of his biggest hits. He switched back to Prince in 2000 after his Warner Bros. contract expired.
    
Prince also used the symbol on the cover of a 1992 album before he took it as a name and it was his signature early on after release of his hit "Purple Rain."
    
Prince died in April 2016 at age 57 of an opioid overdose, according to authorities.
