I'm working with Corine Land Cover Map 2012 in QGIS. I can't find any information about the color code. Values range from 0 to 255 but there's no indication which value stands for which land cover type.

    there is also a spreadsheet here with the land cover codes and their corresponding RGB color codes as defined by the EEA and a CSV version here – dmci Jun 14 '17 at 13:40
  • @Mapperz those 14 categories do unfortunately not correspond to the colors in QGIS. – dadadingo Jun 14 '17 at 13:59
  • @dmci the spreadsheet seems to fit. Thanks. If you post your comment as an answer I will accept it to close the question. – dadadingo Jun 14 '17 at 14:01

There is a spreadsheet available here with the land cover codes and their corresponding RGB color codes as defined by the EEA and a CSV version here. For completeness, the clc codes and RGB color codes are included below.

You'll also find useful information about using CLC data in QGIS here.

    Can you list them here (in case the links become dead urls in the future please) – Mapperz Jun 14 '17 at 15:16

I've created a color map for QGIS. In the raster properties use the render type "Singleband pseudocolor" and load the following color map from a text file:
