Tomorrow is July 16th, better known by Western New Yorkers as "716 Day."

This week, Morning Bull on 97Rock asked listeners to create the colors of "716 Day."

After several submissions, the top four choices were:

  • Orange, green, white (representing chicken wings, celery, and Bleu cheese)
  • Rust, blue-green, white (representing the Rust Belt and chicken wing sauce, the blue/green of the waterways in the 716, and white for snow and Bleu cheese)
  • Violet, red, indigo (the seventh, first, and sixth colors in ROYGBIV)
  • Green, white, purple (representing the Bills colors combined, landscape, winter, and Sabres colors combined)

After voting on the top four, the winner is rust, blue-green, and white. The Iskalo Electric Building and Big Ditch Brewery will be lit up in these colors Saturday.
