Here in the US it is customary to give silver to people celebrating a 25th anniversary. When Southwest Airlines turned 25 years old, Kelleher had the newest aircraft delivered in buffed bare metal aside from the tail colors and a thin white "cheatline" running the length of the fuselage. As GoingBoeing said, it has now been painted over with a grayish-silver color and the cheatline is now red.
