These templates are designed to help color NetHack symbols consistently. They use the standard CGA colour palette that NetHack uses, plus a black background for ease of viewing.


To display the symbol for a yellow light, type {{yellow|y}}. Result: y.

Or you could use the Template:Monsym instead: {{monsym|floating_eye}}
