Colors - ISCC/NBS

ISCC-NBS is a system for color names based on a set of 12 color terms and a small set of adjectives.

It was first established by ISCC (Inter-Society Color Council) in the 1930s by delegates from American trade organizations and the National Bureau of Standards.

"To be a means of designating colors in the United States Pharmacopoeia, in the National Formulary, and in general literature ... to be standardized as to be acceptable and usable by science, sufficiently broad to be appreciated and used by science, art, and industry, and sufficiently commonplace to be understood, at least in a general way, by the whole public."
