What are the standard Epic Colors that I can use in a search quiery

I do not need any custom colors, but would like to know what are the standard epic colors that come by default in the JIRA Agile pallete. 

I am basically creating a custom quick filter to show issues of all the epics with a given color.

So using something like

"Epic Color" is pink 

But does not seem to work.

ghx-label numbers in Jira.png

I got those from Jira v7.11.1. Hope it helps.

Saw this guide elsewhere for v7 so wanted to update for Cloud / v8.  We had a user that switched from Scrum to Kanban and wanted to be able to edit the colors.  I added the Epic Colour field to his view and gave him this guide to enter (there is no color picker, just an open text box for the field).

Epic colors:

  • Ghx-label-1 = brown
  • ghx-label-2 = orange
  • Ghx-label-3 = muted orange
  • Ghx-label-4 = blue
  • Ghx-label-5 = dark blue
  • Ghx-label-6 = green
  • Ghx-label-7 = muted red
  • Ghx-label-8 = purple
  • Ghx-label-9 = pink

From some browsing via google, I found that the colors are now named: ghx-label-1 to ghx-label-9. Can we get a mapping of what is for what color. And some suggestion of how I can use that in the query above.
