On the left, the standard paint colour RAL 6024, which in German is called 'Verkehsgrün'. This translates into English as 'Traffic Green'. On the right, the standard paint colour BS381C 267, also known as 'Traffic Green' (or sometimes Deep Chrome Green). Be careful which one you order.

How many other clashes are there in the so-called standard paint colours, and how difficult would it have been to come up with different names?
