Color Spot Tables: tables of color swatches and color codes used in HTML and CSS

Scalable Vector Graphics Color Names

This page shows the 147 color names defined by the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Specification and swatches of colors that are defined using those names. These colors are sorted by their color name. This is just one of the ways you can define colors in HTML attributes and in Cascading Style Sheets; you can use a quick reference table to help you choose from among the many color tables available.

Although these names are recognized in HTML and CSS standards, not all Web browsers will display colors defined using these names. Not all of the swatches in the table below might show up in your browser when defined in HTML or CSS--look to see. These colors do show up in SVG viewers--you can see these SVG colors displayed in an SVG viewer.

Note that there are 147 color names, but not that many distinct colors, as some name variants are given for the same color values--grey (spelled with "e") and gray (spelled with "a") are both listed here for the same color. Also, there are repetitions for magenta and fuchsia.

Color swatches are defined by using the SVG name for the color and are sorted by SVG color name.

You can see the meaning of the labels (Safe 16 SVG Hex3) on the Color Spot table of tables.
