The Codes for the colours are longer and more complex to identify using darkness, saturation and an identification of the primary colours. For example,
- NCS 1075-Y20R:
- 1075 = 10% dark, 75%, Saturation, Y = Yellow, 20% = Red.
- Over 1000 colour combination are available using the NCS colour system.
