Just about anything will stand out against the sky, but in general flat 
dark colors are the least noticeable.  I used to live in the middle of 
Scottsdale and I spent a lot of time looking around while I was driving 
to and from work to see what structures stood out the least.  After I 
relocated to a more rural area close to the Mexican border I did the 
same thing.  Again, flat dark colors were the most consistently 
unobtrusive.  When I put my tower and antennas up, I added some lighter 
colors to break up the shape, but if I wanted to please the majority of 
people in a neighborhood environment and could only choose one color, it 
would be a flat dark charcoal.
