Ultimate HTML Color HEX Code List

Ultimate HTML Color HEX Code List

HTML 3.2 specifications identified sixteen colors that can be used by name to define color in HTML and CSS. But don't worry you can use more than sixteen colors in HTML... you'll just need to know the six character HEX values and we've listed pretty much all of the ones you'll need on one page.


Standard 16 Named Color Codes

 Black or 000000 Gray or 808080 Silver or C0C0C0 White or FFFFFF
 Navy or 000080 Blue or 0000FF Teal or 008080 Aqua or 00FFFF
 Purple or 800080 Maroon or 800000 Red or FF0000 Fuschia or FF00FF

I thought all hex code colors can be used in html and css?


Yeah they can... but older computers might not recognize them. Technology is improving pretty rapidly, and it wasn't all that long ago when I had to worry about if the colors we were using in a web design were using the 216 WebSafe colors... thankfully those days are over and you're free to use any of the 16 Million colors that you want.


this site would be the absolute best resource for anyone, wouldn't it?!

great chart, btw.


I'm not sure I'd call it "Ultimate". These guys have NAMED every websafe color, and have a good start on some random nonwebsafe colors...like here.


The link is to MY submitted color names that I have credit for. See the colors link at the bottom for the websafe colors and nonwebsafe colors.


It's not obvious what's going on with some of the color names unless you see the hex codes...which are posted in the color pages.


And then ... there's my own MOTHER OF ALL HTML COLO(U)R CHARTS It's massive enough, but still needs a lot of expansion in places. Some of the reference links have also gone away.


what i mean be absolute best is that we have 252,833+ colours on this site. is there any other site with that many at your disposal?!!!?


Colors and palettes here are coming very fast, compared to the old place. There are still millions left to name, though.


darius, what was the criteria for which colours to include in your chart? i guess i just don't understand HTML, etc. (i'm so old school!)


The top 2 charts... 16 Named & WebSafe were looking back and the restrictions we used to have... the other several hundred were just a nice display of some colors.


"a nice display" is an understatement. i love it. it must have been hard to choose.

i was just thinking the other day about the chart that was on the old site when i started - all the colours listed with just teeny tiny chips. that's how i started making palettes! i was wondering if there's anything like that now. probably not since there are sooooooo many colours.


Thanx! Great article!


This is an excellent resource - the most comprehensive, clear and well laid out chart I have come across.


Thanks. The best chart I've seen.


Thanks! This is very handy! :]


Thanks, very useful and handy....


Actually, modern browsers also honour a list of colour names taken from the X11 colour list. This list happens to be enshrined in the SVG and CSS3 specs and provides about 150 more colours by name.

Have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web-safe_color for more information.

i just like to look at colours. they're pretty.


does anybody know how to make colors transparent??
please if anybody knows send a reply..


Why can i only see one pallet of colours now Dx


Here is another way to look at hex color if anyone is interested.
Designing with Hex Color


Websafe colours are sort of a non-issue these days.


so you can use any color on websites now? I didn't know that.


web... this think always make me dizzy...


Wow, so many beautiful colors *_*




I like it , This site would be useful for my upcoming design
thanks you
