Scania Colours

For digital media, we've devided the Scania colours in brand, primary, secondary and tertiary colours. If you're using print, please find the appropriate colour values in the Scania Identity Manual.

Restrictions: The colours may only be used for their intended purposes. Any restrictions must be followed. The colours should not be altered.


For web development purposes you should use our LESS variables file to access colors: https://static.scania.com/build/global/3.5.3/less/corporate-ui/variables.less

Brand Colours

The Scania brand colours are derived from the Scania symbol and wordmark and effectively establish, represent and communicate the brand.

Scania Blue and Scania White should mainly be used for text and backgrounds.

Scania Red is represented by the griffin in the Scania symbol. It must be used with great care and only as a highlight or accent colour, never to steal attention from the griffin. Red can also be associated with warning signs and negative results (e.g. red numbers in a table).

Primary palette

The Scania brand colours are supported by primary supporting colours and a secondary colour palette. All Scania colours must be represented as outlined by the CSS classes definied in the Corporate UI stylesheet. The primary supporting colours in grey offset the brand colours and form the primary background of the colour scheme.

Secondary palette

Scania’s secondary colour palette is designed to be used to vary or highlight content. Orange communicates news, innovation and power. The greens and beige are natural colours that reinforce Scania’s image as a grounded, reliable organization, and a leader in the shift towards a sustainable transport system.

Tertiary palette

The tertiary palette broadens the fields of colour beyond the spectrum of the primary and secondary pallets. They should not be used to make our brand more vivid, rather than in places where you'll really need the extra colours, like for examle in complex charts. It is never advised to use a tint or tonal percentage of a colour.

Font and Icon Colours

Texts and icons on coloured backgrounds
rgb(250, 250, 250)
HEX #fafafa
LESS @inverted-font-color

Interaction Colours

The main interaction colours are used only in digital media, often for buttons, alert messages and form elements. Input fields, for example, can get positive and negative feedback, whereas alert messages can have warning feedback. Buttons can guide the user in a very good way as long as the same colours are implemented across the organisation, sending the same message.




Use the alert-success class when informing the user of a succesfull event.
Use the alert-warning class when informing the user that something went wrong, although it is not crusial.
Use the alert-danger class when informing the user that something has gone really bad, or that the next step is irreversibel. Most commonly used when the user is about to delete content.
Use the alert-info class when highligting information that is extra relevant at the time beeing.


When you need to illustrate information as a gradient, use the scale below. The colors should be used only to make gradients in charts. The colours are not allowed to be use elsewhere.

rgb(96, 226, 102)
HEX #60e266

Data Visualization Colours

Column Chart Example

For charts we're using a combination of all four palettes. The priority of the colours is shown in the sample chart below, starting with the secondary palette and then expands with the blue brand colour and the primary palette. If needed, we then add on colours from the tertiary palette.

Donut Chart Example

Depending on what kind of data visualization tool you're using and what kind of background you want to embed it in, you might need to combine colours from all Scania palettes.

Area Spline Chart Example

Depending on what kind of data visualization tool you're using and what kind of background you want to embed it in, you might need to combine colours from all Scania palettes.
