The Blue-Turquoise color

Three years ago, the General Assembly of the Spanish Dyslexia Federation unanimously chose turquoise blue as the color that represents the cause of dyslexia, since it is a color with mostly positive connotations for people with dyslexia, since it promotes creativity, calm, serenity, tranquility and relaxation.
