Here are the Kelly colours in r, using color.id to convert the RGB codes into colour names

The first two colours look equivalent to "black" and "white."

kelly.colours <- c("gray95", "gray13", "gold2", "plum4", "darkorange1", "lightskyblue2", "firebrick", "burlywood3", "gray51", "springgreen4", "lightpink2", "deepskyblue4", "lightsalmon2", "mediumpurple4", "orange", "maroon", "yellow3", "brown4", "yellow4", "sienna4", "chocolate", "gray19")
