Hi! I am trying to find a way to specify several colors on the facade of houses, but I do not know how to do it. There are cases when the main color of the house, for example, is white, but the brightest, for example, is yellow. In this case, I would like to be able to add two tags to the building - the predominant color of the facade (in my example, white) and the characteristic color of the facade (in the example, yellow). Help (:

For comparison, type=destination_sign uses colour:back= for the sign's background color.

If the colours of the building are painted in rectangular shapes, you could use building:part to split up the building into multiple parts and assign a colour to each one. If this is not the case, you can only use multiple values for the tag, so in your example building:colour=white;yellow

Yeah, the brightest color should be implied by it having yellow. Although, this doesn't explicitly show white is predominant, only that it is some majority, can even be equal.
