Belize is a visual theme we provide for SAP Fiori applications, in addition to the standard Quartz Light theme. In SAP Fiori, color communicates importance and association, and provides direction to users.
Color balance refers to the recommended mixture of light and dark, and colored and non-colored areas of any SAP Fiori app interface.
Approaching the ideal color balance for each page creates a visual rhythm throughout the application. It also helps to draw the user’s attention to the most important information and functions. Furthermore, it promotes a distinct and consistent look and feel across all SAP Fiori apps.
Color balance (considering dark and light UIs)
Each theme is based on a set of individual base reference values. These are:
- Primary (main user interface colors)
- Secondary (accent colors)
- Grayscale (neutral values)
- Semantic (value state colors)
The reference colors listed on this page give a helpful indication as to where they are used in the UI controls and layouts. However, it is extremely important that reference values are not used directly in the control styling. The Belize reference color values are specific to this particular theme, but are assigned to control parameters.
The reference colors are used as base values, which are then distributed into the UI controls via a stable set of theme control parameters that are available in each theme. Theme control parameters represent semantically named parts of the controls. They are decoupled from the actual color values so that the color values can be easily replaced. The theming guideline explains how these reference values are mapped to the user interface controls.
The recommended primary colors leverage the uniqueness of SAP Fiori apps. The primary colors represent the overall look and feel.

Grayscale areas play an important role in any SAP Fiori user interface. They minimize the risk of over-stimulation and foster simplicity. White and the light grays are mainly used for areas in the background or for borders. Darker gray shades are primarily used for texts.
Semantic colors can be used to represent a negative, critical, positive, neutral, or information status. For more information, see How To Use Semantic Colors / Industry-Specific Colors.
