"Chitose Midori" is a color of good luck connected to pine tree in Japan. Pine tree is called evergreen or millennium green, as they say it lasts a thousand years, and is an existence of symbol of eternity. "Chitose midori," which is the color of the needle of pine tree, was born as a color of big celebration. It is occasionally called "Senzai midori" or "Senzai ryoku."
