When building your website or choosing a color palette for your small business and brand, it is incredibly important to choose a color palette and hex color codes that match your brand’s personality.  If you are wanting to convey a sense of health, freshness, and well-being then green might just be your color! 

In color psychology, green is associated with nature, growth, renewal, and vitality so it really is an excellent choice if your brand is geared towards organic, eco-friendly, and wellness products or services.  Knowing which green color codes to use when you work on your brand color palette will help you create a consistent look and feel for your business.

In this article, we will look at the many different green colors that are available for you to use. I will include the green color name, the hex color code, and RGB color codes for each color so that you have a good starting point.

Understanding Green Color Codes: Hex Color Codes Vs RGB Color Codes

When it comes to using color in design, there are two commonly used types of green color codes that are used – hex color codes and RGB color codes.

Each color code is used to represent how much red, green, and blue is within each color. 

Hex Color Codes

Hex color codes are probably the most widely used color codes around.  A hex color code is a six-digit code that is made up of either letters or numbers starting at zero (indicating that there is no color) and ending with F (indicating that the color is fully saturated).

Hex color codes are displayed in this format: #RRGGBB

For example, if we were to remove all color from something we create black – The hex color code for black would be #000000 (with no red, green, or blue).

Likewise, if we were to fully saturate every color we create white – The hex color code for white is #FFFFFF (fully saturated red, green, and blue).

RGB Color Codes

RGB color codes are also widely used to specify what color is created. RGB color codes are also 6-digit codes but unlike hex color codes, each color is represented with a number between 0 and 255 with zero meaning no color and 255 being a fully saturated color. 

RGB color codes are displayed in this format: RGB (RRR, GGG, BBB)

From our example above, the RGB color code for black is RGB (0 ,0, 0)

While the RGB color code for white is RGB (255, 255, 255).

Pure Green Color Code

Green is one of the three secondary colors along with orange and violet. Pure green is quite a dynamic and in-your-face color!  It really is the brightest of the brightest greens!

How The Green Hex Color Code Is Created

In art, green is created when you mix blue and yellow pigments together. However, on a computer or digital screen colors are made in a different way using light. To create green on a screen you need to remove all the red and blue from the color and only use green light.

The green hex color code is #00FF00.

Likewise, if you were using RGB color codes, you would do the same.

The green RGB color code is RGB(0, 255, 0)

Most software applications allow you to easily add your hex color codes to them. Others, like Photoshop, also allow you to use RGB color codes.

RGB (0,255,0)

If you are looking for a more traditional green color, then you could use this more natural shade of green:

RGB (0,128,0)

From the RGB color code above you can see that the intensity of the green color is halved for this more natural green color.
