More about pink
The word pink is derived from the Danish term pinck oogen, which translates as half-closed eyes or small eyes, a clear reference to the appearance of the dianthus flower. Unbelievably, the word pink —referring to a color — was not used until the end of the 1700s, and not in general use until the 1800s.
The Urban Dictionary says: “In good health. In the 1500s pink meant “the embodiment of perfection,” but the current idiom (in good health) dates only from about 1900”.
The Grammarist says: “In the pink is an English idiom that means to be at the peak of health, to be in perfect condition. The expression in the pink to mean to be at the peak of health goes back to the 1500s when the word pink did not refer to a color.”
