ORCN color codes system
The Official Register of Color Names features a comprehensive collection of colors identified by their 24-bit RGB (HEX triplet) Color Codes, which is a popular digital color model used in various digital applications such as image editing, web design, and graphics. Our dedicated team of ORCN experts and enthusiasts from around the world work tirelessly to register existing color names and add new ones as promptly as possible. Each color in the register has its own individual color page, linked to its precise HEX Color Code for easy reference and use in digital applications.
The acronyms RGB belong to the primary colors: Red, Green, and Blue. The RGB chromatic model consists of combining three different colors, modifying each one's lighting, and obtaining a new color. Thanks to this model, the monitors, televisions, telephones, cameras, and any screen can display millions of different colors. READ MORE

However, the HEX code has the advantage that it is much easier to memorize than the RGB code. READ MORE
