It just wasn't fitting that the woman who may be the U.S. Naval Academy's last Color Girl helped transfer the brigade flags on the cement floor of a hockey rink instead of the green grass of sun-splashed Worden Field yesterday.But drenching rains forced the ceremony, a 121-year-old tradition that is on the verge of falling victim to changing sensibilities, inside cavernous Dahlgren Hall and turned it into a pale shadow of its former self.Instead of the entire brigade of midshipmen stretched out across the field, only the color company was formed at one end of the rink.

I wear only black or white, and I stay with suits with slim pants and skirts. When my husband grumbles about my lack of interest in color, I point out that minimalism costs less. But now, with all the color in the stores, I'm tempted to buy a coat that will surprise him while giving a lift to my spring wardrobe.What would be the best choice?The most functional coat is an easy-fitting seven-eighths. This length is the right proportion for pants and long or short skirts. The easy fit allows it to go comfortably over jackets, dresses or tops.

WHILE YOU SLEPT, the colors have changed. Not on the trees. In the fall mail-order catalogues.Remember how proud you were when you learned that ecru was basically an off-white? Well, ecru, named after the small French animal from whose leavings the color is distilled, is now on the passe color list. My catalogues from J. Crew, Tweeds and other upscale schmutterfloggers, barely use the term. Garments are no longer listed in white or ecru. White sweaters are now snow, winter or limestone. Off-white is now parchment, lava, quartz, bone, shell or ale.I swear, I am not making any of this up.Slightly darker tones, moving to what the unenlightened might call tan, are now sand, mortar, feather, rattan, palomino, thorn, mushroom and creme.

Color is one of the simplest and yet most profound ways human beings have of shaping their surroundings to suit their style, taste and whim. Color can suggest a sense of history (Williamsburg blue), a sense of place (Provencal yellow), an era (mauve, the Gilded Age; turquoise, the 1950s), a discipline (minimalist white), a sport (black and orange), a gender (pink or blue). It can lift or soothe the spirits, whisper conformity or scream eccentricity. But how many of us really know how to use it?

In case you haven't noticed, color is back in a big way this summer. We're not talking dainty florals or big bold Hawaiian prints, and we don't even mean measured cabana stripes. What we're talking about is hot pink, fiery orange and bright blue in big bold splashes that are impossible not to notice. So pack up the black. It's time to toss on a little color, race outside and cavort like a jumping bean. Here are some ideas to get you started: Hot in the shade Maybe there was a time when you wanted your sunglasses basic and black -- it was all about blending in. Now it's all about making a statement.

Even after the invention of photography, painters still claimed supremacy in rendering color, especially in portraiture. Photographers responded by hand-painting their images to make them more lifelike."

Colors used in a company's products can qualify for trademark protection. A headline in yesterday's editions incorrectly used the word copyright in describing this protection.+ The Sun regrets the errors.WASHINGTON -- Somewhere over the rainbow, there may be a color that could turn the most homely and ordinary thing in life into a thing of beauty -- making attic insulation pink, for example. Of such artistic sensitivity can a Supreme Court decision be made.Quoting G. K. Chesterton, ordinarily not a legal authority, Justice Stephen G. Breyer wrote a court opinion yesterday giving makers of consumer goods a right to monopolize a color, keeping it forever away from competitors.

HOLLYWOOD -- Flesh tone alert! Colorization is back. Along with the mullet hairstyle, Vanilla Ice and Andrew Dice Clay, colorization was among the biggest embarrassments of the 1980s and early '90s. Thanks to complaints of filmmakers and movie purists, though, colorization faded from sight like a painful memory. Until now. Columbia TriStar Home Video has unleashed two collections of vintage Three Stooges shorts -- in computerized color. Nyuk, nyuk, yuck! Why the just-add-color revival?

Buying a car was a lot easier back in the days of the Model T Ford, especially when it came to picking the color. You could get black, or you could get black.But in the era of antilock brakes and turbo-charged fuel injection, life is not nearly so simple.Car manufacturers are being offered more than 150 different colors to pretty up their latest offerings, including pink and purple.There are even new paints that people in the industry call bi-color hues, where the color changes depending on the angle from which the car is viewed.

I have no confidence at all when it comes to buying clothes, and I might as well be colorblind. I'm so insecure, I always stick to neutrals.I go for grays and beiges as well as those other safe colors, black and brown.My sister constantly nags me about it. Her latest approach has been to buy me what she wants me to wear.For fall, she gave me a red coat, saying, "At the very least dress up those boring colors."I actually like the coat, but I don't know whether this is right for me.Can I wear it with my beige suits and other neutrals?
