Legitimate colours[edit]

who's to say Gray-tea green is a legitimate color while Olive-yellow isn't?

Moving to Variations/Varieties of ...[edit]

It has been suggested that Category:Shades of organge be moved to either Category:Variations of organge or Category:Varieties of organge. Where this move to go through all Shades of ... categories and their associated templates should also be moved. The discussion is here. Jimp 02:08, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

RGB values used in chart for Green[edit]

I'm reverting the values back to #008000 because that value is sourced. The "true" RGB values for Green are vague. I agree the G in RGB stands for Green, however #008000 is used more commonly for the generic green in standards from what I've seen. If we are going to use color samples in templates we should at least use one that is sourced. PaleAqua 20:49, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

I disagree completely. The green template should use color #00FF00 (X11 green) for the color bar. All the other color templates that are spectral colors use the spectrum color for their color bars, so green should also. X11 green (#00FF00) is just as much a valid source as is HTML green (#008000). Keraunos (talk) 19:39, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Heading colour[edit]

The colour used in the heading of the template (electric green) is rather hard on the eyes. Perhaps it should be changed to something milder? ... discospinster talk 03:29, 21 March 2011 (UTC)


I try input the color Mantis is in the template but does not show up. Is there a maximum of 60 entries? (talk) 23:05, 10 September 2011 (UTC) User talk:

Sage green should be added. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:48, 5 April 2013 (UTC)


How accurate are these shades?

  • Honeydew appears as white, but the link points to spring green, but the two look nothing like each other
  • shamrock and lawn if named for the entities they supposedly represent are way off
