After much debate San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate bridge, completed in 1937, was painted “International Orange”. This was despite the Navy’s attempts to have it painted in garish black and yellow stripes (like a bumble bee) to make it stand out in foggy conditions and the Army Air Corp’s bid for candy cane white and red stripes to make it more visible from the air.
