I am having a software problem while rendering these colors (some frames are broken). Sometimes that happens and I have to deal with it for hours. I wanted to see if it's the official colors, but the official source in the Wikipedia discussion doesn't work. Also, I think the tones available on this page look more beautiful and harmonious. I'll try again if the colors are updated again.
