This chart is quite easy to read.
It consists of 48 rows of colors with the background set to that color.
Each row lists the color hexadecimal code and the color name is in one of the 5 category columns.
We collected color information from a great many books and websites to make this chart of 48 colors. Unfortunately, color names are not standardized and we tried to find the most popular name for each of the colors.
The hexadecimal codes are not standardized either. For example, one source says the hexadecimal code for harlequin is 40FF00 yet another states that it is 3FFF00. Also, notice that the color Free Speech Green appears twice on our list - as 20FF00 and 00FF20.
