Color names supported by HTML and hexadecimal (hex) values and used by Color Picker

The Color Picker in Claro allows you to select a custom color using the two color wheels or by entering a hex value or HTML color name below the wheels.

Hex values

HTML colors are defined using a hexadecimal (hex) value defined by a combination of Red, Green, and Blue (RGB, for the colors in the spectrum of light ).

The values range from 0 to 255 for each color (R, G. amd B). The lowest value is #000000 (RGB: 0,0,0), which is white. The highest value is #FFFFFF (RGB: 255,255,255), which is black. Combinations of these values give more than 16 million different colors. Not all of these can be displayed accurately on all computer screens and across all browsers, however!

HTML Color Names

Standard HTML color names were defined in the HTML and CSS web standards to ensure cross-browser support.

There are 17 standard colors, including aqua, black, blue, fuchsia, gray, grey, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive, purple, red, silver, teal, white, and yellow.

There are 130 more color names you can enter as well. Make sure to enter the color name with no spaces (the field is case-insensitive, so you can enter “CornflowerBlue” or “cornflowerblue”, for example). The color field highlights in red if an invalid color name is entered.

NOTE: The color grey can be spelled “grey” or “gray”.

For a complete and very useful list of these colors, see page on HTML Color Names.
