Hello all,

Just wondering, from what I know from reading on the Internet and then talking to people, a lot of people's colour of passport is blackish-blue or really dark blue.

I recently got my passport and it is light blue shade - not at all the dark blue-blackish that I see on the Internet or that one of my friends have.

Is there a difference between two colours? I know there is no explicit difference stated, but in reality are these different colours to differentiate based on some characteristic feature of a person?? The reason I ask this is because both shades are too far apart - one has a blackish feel to it and the one I got has a really nasty light blue shade that I DONT LIKE AT ALL.

Please share your opinions on this.

Thanks

Zhu

My passport is dark blue and I have never any other colors for Canadian passports. That's weird...

See on Wikipedia, the pictures of a typical Canadian passport: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_passport#Physical_appearance

Thanks for your reply Zhu. Yes, I was also of the opinion that it was dark blue. May be I got an old passport booklet or something. I contacted Passport Canada about it and they said that it was a regular passport - which wasnt my main concern at all.

My main concern is that I dont like the color of it - blackish blue or dark dark blue was the one that I was expecting. Note that when I say light blue I am referring to a shade of blue that is somewhere between light and dark blue (not really light light blue).

So, for example, my passport is NOT of this color (C4FAF9). What I have is similar to this color (7084FC or maybe this 2689F8). However, I expected something like this (040C3A). These are HTML color codes and you can google for these codes to see what color they yield.

I have also seen the picture of canadian passport on your blog Zhu (in the passport post) and that is the same color that I expected mine to be.

Nonetheless, it is a real passport but I sort of wanted that blackisk really dark dark blue cover which looks more professional and `cool` LOL.

Thanks zhu

Plus, is this some sort of clever attempt to help `distinguish BETWEEN citizens` at foreign ports of entry - for example, based on place of birth may be... I wouldnt be surprised at all if it was so.
