    Those are the color codes for .conkyrc file. Like where yours says

    ${cpugraph cpu0 16,200 ffffff ffffff}
    you can substitute ffffff ffffff with another code off the chart to change the color. Whatever color the text is , next to the code, is the color that will display. I would not use # that is in front of the code number though.
