Color Palettes

Oh, those colors. Of all the colors in the world—we picked two. “Just Valencia College Red and Valencia College Yellow” you say? Well, there’s also black and gray. Using our official colors helps folks know it’s Valencia College.

The following PANTONE, RGB and CMYK reference numbers have been carefully selected for the Valencia College identity. PANTONE is the recognized industry standard color guide for the printing and design industry. CMYK is used for four-color printing, RGB for computer displays and web communication.

In instances where vendors do not use these color numbers, such as when manufacturing clothing and other promotional items, refer to the printed examples as your guide to choose a color that best matches.


Still unsure? We’re happy to help.

We get it. It’s a lot of information to soak in. Reach out—that’s what we’re here for. It takes us all to maintain the brand our students know and love.
