You could do something like this:

char hex[] = "01234567ABCDEF";
  switch(colornum)
  {
  case 0:                  color="Black";
                                    break;
  case 128:                color="Maroon";
                                    break;
  case 32768:            color="Green";
                                    break;
  case 32896:            color="Olive Green";
                                    break;
  case 8388608:          color="Navy Blue";
                                    break;
  case 8388736:      color="Purple";
                                    break;
  case 8421376:      color="Teal";
                                    break;
  case 8421504:    color="Gray";
                                    break;
  case 12632256:      color="Silver";
                                    break;
  case 255:                  color="Red";
                                    break;
  case 65280:            color="Lime Green";
                                    break;
  case 16711680:   color="Blue";
                                    break;
  case 16711935:   color="Fuchsia";
                                    break;
  case 16776960:   color="Aqua";
                                    break;
  case 16777215:   color="White";
                                    break;
  default:
        color[0]='$';
        int h=colornum;
        for (i=7; i>=0; i--)
          color[i]=hex[(h>>=4)&15];
        color[9]=0;
  }


where colornum is an integer value contain the RGB color,
and color is a string.

If the color is not in the list, it is converted to a hex string.

If you have the RGB values in 32-bit format (it depends on the format of the bitmap, which may be device specific), you can use the macros:
GetBValue(color)
GetGValue(color)
GetRValue(color)
to get the Blue, Green and Red values and format them according to your convenience.
