Have a look at the constructors for java.awt.Color. They enable you to specify the exact rbg combinations you require.

The only colors you can refer to by name are :

black
blue
cyan
darkGray
gray
green
lightGray
magenta
orange
pink
red
white
yellow

Any other color you want to use you will have to create using the Color() constructors :

Color(ColorSpace cspace, float[] components, float alpha)
Color(float r, float g, float b)
Color(float r, float g, float b, float a)
Color(int rgb)
Color(int rgba, boolean hasalpha)
Color(int r, int g, int b)
Color(int r, int g, int b, int a)

And if rgb's aren't your thing (like most humans), here are the rbg's for color names:
