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.
