I take it there is no difference between orange the fruit and orange the color? Sorry, lots of portuñol questions over here.

Fun fact: Portugal means orange in several languages like Farsi and I think some eastern european languages

But it clearly doesn't apply to all languages. The majority of the languages I speak have separate words for the colour and the fruit.
