Can I add a colored tag (like an Epic link tag) to an issue on a Kanban board using a custom field?

Hi there,

Ideally I want to add colored tags (in the same style as the Epic link tags) to issues on a Kanban board. I know I can add colors to the sides of the cards based on a custom field, but ideally it would be the text of the custom field itself that has the color.

This would make it much easier to understand at a glance what the colors mean and would make our board more legible in general.
