About Us


Chrysanthos Color Company was established in the GuangXi Autonomous Region of China in the capital city of Nanning during 2005.

Historically, the name Chrysanthos is derived from the Greek words chrysos (χρυσος) meaning “gold” and anthos (ανθος) meaning “flower“, so in combination Chrysanthos (Χρυσανθος) means “golden flower”.

The name Chrysanthos was first used by a semi-legendary 3rd century Egyptian saint and the founders name also links back to the similar origins.

In Mandarin, the name “golden flower” (金花) pronounced “jinhua”, is fortunate because it means “good luck“.

The logo designed to be the emblem of the company itself resembles a spectacular golden flower.


Chrysanthos Color Company Limited is western owned and managed.

Organisationally we are divided in to broadly four areas, Management & Administration, Color Production, Color Wheel Production and Education working out of one location within Nanning.
