Color is an important part of our visual system. Specific colors are combined to create a unique signature for the University of Colorado Boulder. To maintain consistency in our visual identity system, it is essential to reproduce our colors accurately. The official colors of CU Boulder are CU Gold (PMS 4525 C), Black, CU Dark Gray (PMS 425 C) and CU Light Gray (PMS 422 C). Always follow the CMYK, RGB and web/hex values shown on this page.

Other colors may be used in CU Boulder communications as accents in support of the primary color palette on this page. All communications, however, should feature the colors specified on this page to ensure consistency and build recognition of the CU Boulder visual identity.
