News Board Lite (previously known as News for Confluence Cloud) offers three fixed category keywords - News, People, and Important.

You can edit the four default categories or add more. However, while you can edit existing categories, categories can't be deleted, only marked inactive.
The colours assigned to the lozenge can be customised from the Look and Feel configuration. The colour displayed is controlled by the content, not the category.

Separating colours from keywords allows you to have different category keywords for content related to the same topic colour, like 'Recent Joiners' and 'Birthdays' for people.
Future versions of News Board may support pairing category keywords with specific colours. Let me know in the comments if this feature interests you.
