That is partially explained here:


"HEX - #d70a53  - conversion by Gimp (a color which by the way seems to
be called "Debian Red" officially, see e.g. this page)"

I also seem to remember Debian merchandise produced by Debian folks
favouring this colour over the other Debian red colours.

It wasn't used as the code name of the software, but the name of the
theme based on the 'Debian Red' colour. Journalists were mistaken.
