Due to increasing research being conducted at ICASE in the field of fluid mechanics, future ICASE reports in this area of research will be printed with a green cover. Applied and numerical mathematics reports will have the familiar blue cover, while computer science reports will have yellow covers.

During the night the wind had blown away all the clouds; the dark blue sky was spreading overhead, and in its midst was the bright sun shining down on the green slopes of the mountain, where the flowers opened their little blue and yellow cups, and looked up to him smiling.
