RAL Colour 8000
This RAL 8000 Colour is presented to you as a part of brown hues assortment on the RAL Classic colour chart. You will notice that all of these grouped colours follow this specific designation, which is based on four-digit number in combination with the letters "RAL". This is why brown colours are sequentialy coded under 8xxxx, where 8 is a system code number (1: yellow, 2: orange, 3: red, 4: purple, 5: blue, 6: green, 7: grey, 8: brown and 9: white and black shades).
The name Green brown actually serves as additional, auxiliary designation, making the colour easier to remember. This naming system also provides additonal quality assurance preventing erroneous colour assigment due to number transposition.
On this particular hue range, in addition to 'green brown', you will find hand-picked colour tones selected by RAL institute design experts. This brown colour assortment holds another 19 excellent tones (making a total of 20 unique colour samples).

◾ RAL 8000 to CMYK
In the CMYK colour system the RAL 8000 is composed by combining four primary tones of pigment. To achieve this exclusive "green brown" colour tone, out of 100% maximum colour components, 50% cyan, 60% magenta, 90% yellow and none key (black) are used.
You can immediately see this result on this computer simulated CMYK diagram.
The mixture of these primary colours blends in the middle on a square space where all four different colour hue sheets overlap.
◾ RAL 8000 to RGB
The conversion of RAL 8000 into RGB colour space requres specific composition of red, green, and blue primary colours.
To construct hue matching "green brown" colour from the RAL chart as close as possible, we use the following values ranging from 0 to 255 on the RGB colour system: 137 red, 105 green and 62 blue.
The three circle RGB diagram here provides illustrative example showing how red value stands out a bit in comparison to green and blue to construct this unique tone of colour. The RAL colour equivalent emerges in the very center, where all three primary colour circles overlap and combine.
