Colorful symbols and white box with text saying colors that start with j

When you look at a list of colors that start with the letter J, a few words are probably going to stand out. Jasper, Jungle, Jade, and Japanese are all names that crop up multiple times on this list, and nature-themed names overall are pretty popular in the J color family.

You can use this as inspiration to find the perfect color for your next graphic design or traditional artwork.

List of Colors That Start With J

Here’s a list of colors that start with the letter J, including names, Hex, RGB, and CMYK codes:

Jacaranda

The name “jacaranda” can be applied to nearly fifty different flowers, as it’s technically the name of a plant family instead of a single plant. Nevertheless, when most of us think of jacaranda flowers, we think of pale purple blossoms, which is why this deep, dark purple shade may come as a bit of a surprise!

Jacaranda
Hex #2E0329 
RGB 46, 3, 41
CMYK 0, 93, 11, 82

Jacaranda (CS)

This second Jacaranda variant is just a little bit lighter than the first shade, with a slight green undertone running under the surface and brightening the overall shade. This color draws some of its inspiration from the twining vines that help support the jacaranda blooms.

RGB 54, 45, 56
CMYK 4, 20, 0, 78

Jacarta

Jacarta is an outdated spelling for Jakarta, the largest city in Indonesia with a population of more than ten million and a booming downtown district. As a color, Jacarta is inspired by the vibrant potential and deep waters that lie off Jakarta’s coast, and the end result is a deep shade of blue with some jazzy purple undertones.

Jack in the Box

If you’ve ever played with a jack-in-the-box toy, you know that the little toy jester in the box can come in just about any color. The color Jack in the Box, however, refers specifically to this cool, steady shade of dark blue with some muted gray undertones.

RGB 61, 63, 125
CMYK 51, 50, 0, 51

Jack-O-Lantern Orange

Jack-O-Lantern Orange is clearly inspired by the bright yellow-orange pumpkins that you typically see decorating homes and buildings during the fall. This shade is a little bit darker than “true” orange, but still remains a cheery, upbeat orange shade with plenty of autumnal warmth.

RGB 244, 120, 30
CMYK 0, 51, 88, 4

Jacko Bean

The origin of the name “Jacko Bean” may be unclear, but the color itself is bold and unmistakable—a deep shade of dark brown with strong black and gray undertones that up the intensity of this shade and push it just a little bit darker without completely losing the warmth and color of the brown tones.

Jacko Bean
Hex #2E1905 
RGB 46, 25, 5
CMYK 0, 46, 89, 82

Jackpot

Jackpot is another relatively dark shade, but it’s significantly lighter than most of the entries we’ve seen so far on this list. A deep green shade with cooler blue undertones, Jackpot is a sturdy, dependable shade of green with just enough brightness to remain interesting.

Jackpot
Hex #145346 
RGB 20, 83, 70
CMYK 76, 0, 16, 67

Jacksons Purple

Jacksons Purple—no apostrophe needed—is actually a lot closer to a dark royal blue shade than it is to a true purple. However, there are some very slight red or magenta undertones running beneath the surface to keep it from presenting as a traditional blue shade instead of a very blue-violet purple.

Jacksons Purple
Hex #20208D 
RGB 32, 32, 141
CMYK 77, 77, 0, 45

Jade

Jade is a semiprecious mineral that can be found in many different colors, although by far the most popular is its pale green variety. As a color, Jade mimics that light, soft, yellow-green shade while still capturing some of the transparency and luminescence that the mineral often displays.

Jade
Hex #00A86B 
RGB 0, 168, 107
CMYK 100, 0, 36, 34

Jade Glass

Sometimes referred to as Dark Turquoise, Jade Glass starts with a traditional Jade base before dialing up the blue values to create a warm, green-blue shade with strong yellow undertones. The end result is a lighter, brighter, and more “glassy” feel than the original Jade starting point could have provided.

Jade Glass
Hex #00CED1
RGB 0, 206, 209
CMYK 100, 1, 0, 18

Jade Green

Jade Green, on the other hand, starts with the same Jade base and mutes out some of the blue tones for a color that’s a lot more obviously green. Jade Green is a medium dark green shade with only the slightest hint of blue to round out the overall color.

Jade Green
Hex #40726D 
RGB 64, 114, 109
CMYK 44, 0, 4, 55

Jade Mussel Green

As compared to Jade and Jade Glass, Jade Mussel Green looks much closer in shade to Jade Green or a regular dark green. While it still retains a bit of the light, glossy yellow undertones that set Jade apart, the overall appearance is a deep, bold, dark green shade.

Jade Mussel Green
Hex #166A45
RGB 22, 106, 69
CMYK 79, 0, 35, 58

Jade Rosin

Rosin is usually a shade of brown somewhere between yellow and black—a resin product that’s been heated in order to basically “boil off” the essential oils. Jade Rosin combines that warm yellow-brown color with the already warm Jade base to create a rich shade of brown with strong green-yellow undertones.

Jade Rosin
Hex #304E18 
RGB 48, 78, 24
CMYK 38, 0, 69, 69

Jade Stone Green

Jade Stone Green, on the other hand, is much closer in appearance to the traditional Jade color. Like most Jade variants, Jade Stone Green draws its primary inspiration from the stone of the same name, although Jade Stone Green has more of a blue undertone than the semiprecious material often displays in real life.

Jade Stone Green

CMYK 38, 0, 30, 27

Jaffa

Jaffa is a port city in Israel—known in ancient times as Joppa—that has served as a hotbed of land disputes for thousands of years. Throughout the city’s long and turbulent history, Jaffa has come to be known for its orange groves, and the bright, sunny rind of that fruit serves as inspiration for Jaffa as a color.

Jagged Ice

RGB 194, 232, 229
CMYK 16, 0, 1, 9

Jagger

The name “jagger” was originally used to refer to anyone who worked with pack horses. Today, it’s most obviously associated with the last name of a certain Rolling Stones singer, and it’s that association that gives the dark purple Jagger color some of its glamour and excitement.

Jagger
Hex #350E57 
RGB 53, 14, 87
CMYK 39, 84, 0, 66

Jaguar

The only panther species native to the Americas, the jaguar’s coat ranges in color from a pale yellow color to a deeper tan-orange shade. While the base color may be overlooked in favor of the iconic spots that set the jaguar apart, this base coat serves as the inspiration for the deep yellow-orange color of this particular shade.

Jaguar
Hex #F6861D 
RGB 246, 134, 29
CMYK 0, 46, 88, 4

Jaguar (CS)

Nearly 25% of jaguars are melanistic, which means that nearly 25% of jaguars may be born with a completely black coat. Often referred to as “black panthers”, these jaguars serve as the inspiration behind this Jaguar color variation, especially when viewed in comparison to the previous entry.

Jaguar (CS)
Hex #29292F 
RGB 41, 41, 47
CMYK 13, 13, 0, 82

Jaguar Spot

Jaguar Spot, on the other hand, is clearly inspired by the dark brown, almost black color of the spots found on all jaguars. Even melanistic jaguars have these distinctive spots, although they’re virtually impossible to see when viewed on the dark coat of a true melanistic jaguar.

CMYK 50, 94, 0, 94

Jaguars Dark Gold

As should be expected given their mascot, the Jacksonville Jaguars—a football team based in Jacksonville, Florida—use two gold shades and dark black shade as some of their official colors. Jaguars Dark Gold is a deep shade of dark gold that borders on brown, with some darker red undertones pushing the color even further.

Jaguars Dark Gold
Hex #9F792C 
RGB 159, 121, 44

Jaguars Gold

As compared to Jaguars Dark Gold, Jaguars Gold is significantly lighter, but still carries some of the same visual impact and drama that Dark Gold boasts. The overall shade is a bright, bold shade of antique gold that’s been tempered with brighter yellow and yellow-gold undertones.

Jaguars Gold
Hex #D7A22A 
RGB 215, 162, 42
CMYK 0, 25, 80, 16

Jaguars Teal

Finally, Jaguars Teal is the “accent color” used by the Jacksonville Jaguars to lend a bit of color to their uniforms. The shade is a deep Teal variant, which means that it straddles the line between green and blue while veering slightly more towards the blue side of the scale than most traditional Teal shades do.

Jaguars Teal
Hex #006778 
RGB 0, 103, 120
CMYK 100, 14, 0, 53

Jalapeno

Jalapeno is a warm, deep red shade that isn’t inspired so much by the actual appearance of a jalapeno pepper as it is by the sense of heat and spice that that pepper adds to just about any dish that the recipe calls for.

Jalapeno

RGB 112, 28, 40

Jandal

In New Zealand, “jandal” is an old colloquial term for what you may know as “flip-flops”, “thongs”, “pluggers”, or “slippers”. No matter what you call them, these summertime shoes serve as the primary inspiration for the warm, sandy appearance of the color Jandal, which hearkens back to long days spent on the beach in the summer sun.

Jandal
Hex #B78239 
RGB 183, 130, 57
CMYK 0, 29, 69, 28

Janna

RGB 157, 41, 51
CMYK 0, 74, 68, 38

Japanese Coral

Japanese Coral starts with a base of Japanese Carmine or dark red and then treats the color slightly to end up with a softer, more pink overall shade. Some light yellow undertones give the overall color a yellow-pink appearance with a darker red tint to create a balanced, lightweight shade.

Japanese Coral
Hex #C47A88 
RGB 196, 122, 136
CMYK 0, 38, 31, 23

Japanese Indigo

Japanese Indigo is a specific shade of indigo that dates back to the Edo period of Japanese history and was originally reserved for only the highest social classes. As a color, Japanese Indigo is a bold shade of very dark blue that verges on black thanks to the intensity of its shade.

RGB 38, 67, 72
CMYK 47, 7, 0, 72

Japanese Laurel

Japanese Laurel is the first of three plant-themed names within the Japanese family. Warm and sturdy while still relatively dark, Japanese Laurel is a deep shade of green with some darker brown undertones, inspired by the leaves and branches of the tree that bears the same name.

Japanese Maple

Native to Japan, Korea, China, and parts of Russia and Mongolia, the Japanese maple tree is cultivated around the world for its bold red foliage during the fall.

RGB 120, 1, 9
CMYK 0, 99, 93, 53

Japanese Violet

The flowers of the Viola japonica are typically a lot lighter than this dark purple shade would have you believe. However, as a color, Japanese Violet is more a dark variation on deep blue-purple Violet than it is a reference to the plant that shares its name.

Japanese Violet

RGB 91, 50, 86
CMYK 0, 45, 5, 64

Japanese White

Japanese White is a soft shade of off-white with some very slight red and yellow undertones to keep the overall shade from looking too cold or clinical. The end result is a pale pink-brown shade with a slight yellow note and an overall pale eggshell or nearly-eggshell appearance.

Hex #EEE6D9 
RGB 238, 230, 217
CMYK 0, 3, 9, 7

Japanese Withered Maple

Japanese Withered Maple starts with the same base color as Japanese Maple, but the final shade is noticeably more brown than the original variant. As a result, Japanese Withered Maple looks a little bit more aged, weathered and, well, withered than the original Japanese Maple shade appears under the same lighting.

Japanese Withered Maple
Hex #672F30 
RGB 103, 47, 48

Jarrah

“Jarrah” is the colloquial name for a specific type of myrtle tree found in Western Australia. Historically referred to as “Swan River mahogany”, this tree produces wood of a very rich dark brown shade, which serves as the inspiration behind this very dark shade of brown with warm red undertones.

Jarrah
Hex #3B2B2C 
RGB 59, 43, 44
CMYK 0, 27, 25, 77

Jarrah Tree

Jarrah Tree shares the same inspiration as the previous entry on this list, but the shade itself is just a little bit lighter. As compared to Jarrah, Jarrah Tree pulls a little more from the appearance of the tree itself—rather than the lumber—to create a deep brown shade that still has some slightly lighter yellow and red notes.

Jarrah Tree

RGB 82, 49, 47
CMYK 0, 40, 43, 68

Jasmine

Jasmine is a bright yellow shade with some white undertones to brighten the overall appearance and lend a more cheerful finished hue. It draws its inspiration from the bright yellow centers often found among the white flowers of the jasmine vine.

Jasmine

RGB 248, 222, 126
CMYK 0, 10, 49, 3

Jasmine Green

Jasmine Green is a variation on Jasmine White—a pale shade of green that’s been heavily tempered with a soft white shade. The end result is a sweet, almost pastel shade of green with some warm yellow undertones to keep the color from looking too cold or harsh.

Jasmine Green
Hex #ACD38B 
RGB 172, 211, 139
CMYK 18, 0, 34, 17

Jasmine White

Jasmine White, especially as compared to “true” Jasmine, is much closer in appearance to the jasmine flowers you may have seen growing on their vines. A pale shade of off-white, Jasmine White still has some very subtle yellow undertones to brighten it up and lend it a sense of vibrancy and energy.

Jasmine White

RGB 246, 242, 231
CMYK 0, 2, 6, 4

Jasper

Jasper is another semiprecious mineral that can be found in a wide range of colors. The most common color—this bold shade of bright orange-red—is the result of tiny iron particles, which often give off a similar rust red appearance when exposed to oxygen or moisture.

Jasper
Hex #D73B3E 
RGB 215, 59, 62
CMYK 0, 73, 71, 16

Jasper Beige

As mentioned above, jasper stones can come in any number of colors, although warmer shades are more common. Jasper Beige starts with a warm reddish brown base and mutes it out with higher black and gray values to create this stately, reserved shade of dark beige with subtle red and orange undertones.

Jasper Beige
Hex #9E9375 
RGB 158, 147, 117
CMYK 0, 7, 26, 38

Jasper Black

Jasper Black may look like a plain, no nonsense shade of black at first glance, but it actually has some relatively strong blue and red undertones running beneath the surface. As a result, this shade has a slightly purple tint to its overall appearance, although it’s still plenty dark enough to register as a “true” black shade.

Jasper Black
Hex #1A1B20 
RGB 26, 27, 32
CMYK 19, 16, 0, 87

Jasper Blue

Blue is actually one of the rarest colors for jasper to take in nature. However, deposits of a greenish blue jasper have been found in a specific site in Russia, and this rare mineral serves as an inspiration for Jasper Blue, with its deep blue color and subtle green undertones.

Jasper Blue
Hex #4E6590 
RGB 78, 101, 144
CMYK 46, 30, 0, 44

Jasper Brown

Jasper Brown moves the jasper-themed color family back onto familiar ground, as this particular shade of brown is a far more common jasper shade than blue or even black. Jasper Brown is a warm brown shade with strong red undertones to lend extra heat.

Jasper Brown
Hex #824E27 
RGB 130, 78, 39
CMYK 0, 40, 70, 49

Jasper Green

Jasper minerals get their colors from the inclusion of various metals or other minerals within the aggregate. As a result, it should come as no surprise that Jasper Green has a slightly metallic tint to its overall appearance, with some yellow and gray undertones rounding out the otherwise dark green shade.

Jasper Green
Hex #467C4B 
RGB 70, 124, 75
CMYK 44, 0, 40, 51

Jasper Purple

As mentioned above, blue is an extremely rare shade for jasper minerals, but purple is (very) slightly more common. The influence of a “true” jasper can be clearly seen in the strong red undertones that keep this shade from scanning as more of a blue-violet color.

Jasper Purple
Hex #595273 
RGB 89, 82, 115
CMYK 23, 29, 0, 55

Jasper Red

Jasper Red starts with a traditional Jasper base before dialing up the intensity. By dramatically increasing both the red and black values, Jasper Red presents a deep shade of dark red with some of the orange undertones erased in favor of the bold notes and intense visual impact of a dark maroon shade.

Jasper Red
Hex #710505 
RGB 113, 5, 5
CMYK 0, 96, 96, 56

Jasper Salmon

Jasper Salmon, on the other hand, starts with the same Jasper base and veers dramatically in the opposite direction. Compared to Jasper or Jasper Red, Jasper Salmon has a much lower black value and a lower overall saturation level, which makes for a soft shade of light pink-orange with strong red undertones.

Jasper Salmon
Hex #E99579 
RGB 233, 149, 121
CMYK 0, 36, 48, 9

Jasper Slate

Jasper Slate is another member of the Jasper family that wouldn’t be too uncommon in the natural world. A combination of Jasper’s typically warm tones with the cool gray-blue appearance of most Slate variants, Jasper Slate is a relatively warm gray shade with some brighter green undertones.

Jasper Slate
Hex #748783 
RGB 116, 135, 131
CMYK 14, 0, 3, 47

Jasper Tan

Finally, Jasper Tan pulls a lot more from the Tan side of its name than it does from the Jasper side. Nevertheless, it still retains enough of the characteristic warm red-brown undertones to keep the overall shade from looking too pale or too washed out, and the end result is a pale brown shade with just the hint of red.

Jasper Tan
Hex #E1CEAD 
RGB 225, 206, 173
CMYK 0, 8, 23, 12

Jaune

“Jaune” is the French word for “yellow”, so it should come as no surprise that the color Jaune is about as blunt a shade of yellow as any! Although it may scan as just a traditional yellow color, Jaune actually has some very subtle red undertones to lend an extra touch of heat.

RGB 34, 85, 203
CMYK 83, 58, 0, 20

Jazz

Jazz is a fast-paced, energetic shade of purple with some darker gray and black undertones. It’s not unusual for purple colors to be linked with the idea of entertainment or amusement, and Jazz certainly fits the bill with its musical inspiration and the youthful optimism of the color as a whole.

Jazz Green

Unlike the previous entry, Jazz Green isn’t named after a musical genre. Instead, it’s named for the Utah Jazz basketball team, the players of which have been wearing this bold shade of dark green with its strong blue and gray undertones since at least 2010!

Jazz Purple

While they may not wear the color anymore, Jazz Purple was another official color of the Utah Jazz basketball team from 2004 to 2010. Jazz Purple is a deep purple shade with dark navy blue undertones for some added drama, and the end result is a dark, intense color with plenty of heat behind it.

Jazzberry Jam (Ĉ)

Jazzberry Jam (Ĉ) is very similar to the previous entry on this list, but the main difference lies in the origin—Jazzberry Jam is a traditional color, while Jazzberry Jam (Ĉ) is a crayon color! Beyond that, Jazzberry Jam (Ĉ) is slightly lighter and more pink than the previous entry, with a softer, lighter overall feeling.

Jeffrey is another pale off-white shade, but while most off-white shades have a brown or red tint to their overall hue, Jeffrey has a pale green undertone instead. The end result is an extremely pale shade of greenish blue that still almost passes for a pure white at first glance.

Jelly

Jelly is the perfect shade for anyone who’s in the mood for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! With its deep purple appearance and strong red and blue undertones, Jelly is a dark, nostalgic shade that reminds viewers of some of the simpler pleasures of a time long past.

RGB 62, 50, 103

Jelly Bean

The first of two colors named after the same confection, Jelly Bean may seem like an odd color choice. The muted gray blue isn’t nearly as vibrant as most of the candies that share the same name, but the softer violet and purple undertones guarantee that it still provides plenty of sweetness.

Jelly Bean
Hex #297B9A

Jelly Bean 2

This second Jelly Bean variant, on the other hand, is much closer to what most of us probably imagine when we think of a bag of jelly beans. Jelly Bean 2 is a warm, bright shade of red-orange with enough white and yellow undertones to give it a softer, sweeter pink hue.

Jesus Red

Jesus Red is a bright red shade with a somewhat unusual name. In traditional Christian iconography, this particular shade of red is often used to depict a sash, wrap, or other accented parts of Jesus’s clothing, and so the name has just sort of stuck around.

Jesus White

Similarly, Jesus White is a close match to the palely golden off-white color often used to depict Jesus’s robes or the robes of early Christian leaders.
