These colours are for use on ANU websites only. Colours for printed publications may differ. Please check with the Marketing Office.


Colour combinations must pass minimal contrast checks to be considered accessible.

While all default ANU classes are accessible, it may still be possible to create inaccessible combinations. This is especially important when combining classes to use coloured text on a background colour, such as text-gold on bg-white. Gold text on white background passes AA only when the text size is 24px or greater

Colour should also not be used as the only visual means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element.

ANU Gold :- #BE830E
