The Codes for the colours are identified by firstly identfying the darkness NCS 10 (=10% Dark). Then it addresses the saturation NCS 1075 (= 10% Dark, 75% Saturation). The final four digits represent the primary colours (white, black, red, yellow, green and blue). NCS 1075-Y20R (=10% dark, 75%, Saturation, 80% Yellow, 20% Red)
