To change the colour of an epic, you can use the following documentation as guidance: Changing the colour of an epic, however, that is only for Scrum boards. There's no way to manage Epics in Kanban Boards similar to Scrum Boards' Plan mode for now, there's an open improvement regarding this request being tracked at: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-7052

After reading April's answer I realized you can also do this:
Since presumably there's a hidden "Epic Colour" field, the colors appear to stick even after deleting the scrum board.
For what it's worth, I was googling this question and came across a workaround that helped me assign a color for an Epic.... I edited the Epic issue, added the "Epic Colour" to the form, and assigned a label called "ghx-label-6" as the value. That's green. I do not know what other options are available. I know another label called "ghx-label-5" is in use for a different Epic (now that the field is visible on the Default Screen), and that's blue. Presumably there's a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc....
A fix for me was to move the epic to another project which was a scrum board, change the color in the backlog tab which is available for scum boards, then move the epic back to the kanban project
