        <title>Color Palettes in Scribus (2): National/Government Standards</title>
</head>
<body>
<h2>Color Palettes in Scribus (2): National/Government Standards</h2>
<p>In some countries the national standard bodies or governments themselves created standardized color sets, i.e., color standards that bidders/tenderers in calls for tenders must comply with. While some of these standards have niche applications, like military vessels or cables, others are considered to be &ldquo;general purpose&rdquo; color standards. The Scribus Team has collected and will continue to collect as many of those standards as possible, at least if they aren&rsquo;t defined as a subset of other color &ldquo;standards&rdquo; like Pantone&reg;. We hope that this feature will facilitate the use of Scribus in government agencies.</p>
<p>To use one of the standards reliably, you are advised to contact the respective government agency or standards organization, as they may be selling reference materials like color fans or color chips. In many cases, the reference materials can also be bought from vendors of printing accessories. <b>The colors in some Scribus palettes are only approximations!</b></p><br>
