Color Code Chips
This page shows color chips
made with the six-digit hexadecimal representation of color of the form #RRGGBB,
where RR, GG, and BB are the hexadecimal values for the red, green, and blue values
of the color.
Color swatches are defined
by using the six-digit hexadecimal code for the color. The colors are sorted
into groups of similar hue, saturation, and light value. The sorting algorithm
places colors with hues closest together into each 8 x 8 grid and then tries
to position the high saturation and light values at the upper right position
of each 8 x 8 grid. This algorithm is not perfect because the set of colors
it sorts are not at regular intervals, so the chips fall where they may.
Put your cursor over the
color swatch to see the color name and comments if applicable. The color names
are descriptive and shouldn't be used to specify a color unless you are using
the 16 named colors or SVG colors.
