Fun fact: 'gull' isn't an adjective, but a noun, so there's actually not colour called 'gull' in Norwegian...

I was wondering about that because it wasn't amongst the colours that the course teaches. So what about all the gold medals that Norwegian athletes win and that are not made of "real" gold?

Neither 'bronse'(pronounced brånse, brånsje or brångse) nor 'sølv'(pronounced 'søll') are considered colours either. We still call them "bronse-, sølv- og gullmedalje".

You could say that something is 'gullfarget'(gold coloured), although it's often compounded: "den gullfargede medaljen ≈ gullmedaljen".

Jeg ville si: "Treet er gult" ! Gull = gold, gult = yellow. Wait some days and the tree will get coloured leaves again!
