Nickname Colours

Use Minecraft colour codes and hex codes to change the colour of your nickname.

Normal Colour Codes

To use the normal Minecraft colours, add type the colour code and then the text.

For example, if I wanted a yellow username, I would use &eJblack which will make my username yellow.

Colour Codes:

RGB Colours

To use RGB colours, you will need to replace the number/letter of the normal colour code with the HEX colour code.

Go to htmlcolourcodes.com to pick a colour. You must use the HEX code.

Example: I have chosen a blue colour with the colour code #3B9AF2 so I would type it as &#3B9AF2Jblack and it would display in blue.

You can also use multiple colours, example: &#3B9AF2Jbl&#F6A024ack

RGB Gradient Colours

Go to rgbmynick.co.za and enter your nickname. Select the first and second gradient colour. The generator will automatically generate the required code with colour codes inserted. Copy and paste into Minecraft chat - remember to add /nick first.
