Scouting UK Web Colours

For any regular readers here, this is a pretty off-topic post, however, I decided it was worthy of submission. As some may know, I volunteer with a local Scout group, the 1st Chineham to be specific. As a group, we are exploring getting a website up and running; I will have more to post on this subject in the future.

Whilst navigating the branding guidelines and documentation for Scouting UK at http://members.scouts.org.uk/comms_centre/zip/Brand_Guidelines.pdf, I discovered that the official colour palette for Scouting UK is only advertised in RGB and CMYK and Pantone. This is great for working in Office apps (RGB) or print (CMYK) but does not help for web implementation. Using an online RGB to Hex converter, I have pulled together all of the colours. If you are struggling to find them yourself, please feel free to use this as a reference:

  • Scout Purple #4d2177
  • Scout Green #84a40b
  • Scout Mauve #8b0066
  • Scout Orange #ed7703
  • Scout Blue #006990
  • Scout Brown #9d552d
  • Scout Grey #415a68
  • Scout Black #001323
