A pretty in pink pop quiz.

Last year, The Guardian declared the age of “millennial pink” – a vaguely salmon hue that seems to have saturated everything from iPhone covers to mommy bloggers’ couches – “timeless, yet very now.” Seems they were right on the money: This July, Australian scientists discovered that bright pink is the oldest color on earth – 1.1 billion years, to be exact.
Phoenix is also pretty in pink. Can you match each shade with the correct Arizona item?

Answer key: 1. Margarita 2. Sugar Bowl 3. Bougainvillea 4. Sunset 5. Coachwhip snake 6. Pink Jeep
