Mauve is a kinda purple-ish colour (a bit like lilac). It comes from the French word mauve which is a type of flower which looks like this.
It's similar to how the colour orange got its name from the fruit, except here it's a flower :)
Man oh man! At times, duolingo can teach you you're own language, while teaching you another language... It's a two deal pacakge!! (Sounds like a meme) XD
I'm just glad to finally find a tree that teaches mauve! (I really like that color, though it's not my favorite)
Out of curiousity, is this the word mov used more commonly in Romanian than the english counterpart?
