Purple is used by all overprint symbols. No other symbols use this colour.

There are three versions of purple in the default OCAD colour table:

It is not normally necessary to use this colour in process printing. But for those that really want to know, the closest CMYK conversion for Pantone purple is:

Cyan 43, Magenta 91, Yellow 0, BlacK 0
