NCS S 2050-Y20R means that this color has the following properties:
  • S stands for standardized, meaning that it is a fixed color that can be reproduced exactly.
  • 2050 indicates the blackness and chromaticness of the color, which are two dimensions of colorfulness.
    The first two digits (20) represent the percentage of blackness, which is the absence of color.
    The higher the blackness, the darker the color.
    The last two digits (50) represent the percentage of chromaticness, which is the intensity of color.
    The higher the chromaticness, the more saturated the color.
  • Y20R indicates the hue of the color, which is the third dimension of colorfulness.
    It describes the dominant wavelength of the color, or the impression of color that the human eye receives.
    The hue is composed of two letters and two digits.
    The first letter (Y) represents the main hue, which can be one of the four elementary colors: yellow (Y), red (R), blue (B), or green (G).
    The second letter (R) represents the nuance hue, which is the secondary color that is mixed with the main hue.
The nuance hue can be one of the six intermediate colors: yellow (Y), red (R), purple (P), blue (B), green (G), or orange (O).

The two digits (20) represent the percentage of the nuance hue in the hue.

The higher the percentage, the more the color leans towards the nuance hue.

To summarize, NCS S 2050-Y20R is a standardized color with 20\% blackness, 50\% chromaticness, and a yellow hue with 20\% red nuance.

This means that it is a medium-dark, moderately saturated, orange-yellow color.
