If you use RGB colors, then about 16 million :)

@kannibalistic for RGB, (1,0,0,),(2,0,0),(3,0,0),(4,0,0) ect until (255,255,255). About 16 - 17 million colours.

@kannibalistic Python Turtle is based on Tk, which has these named colors. There are about 750 of them.

It depends on the amount of bits. Most displays nowadays use 24 bit pixels which can render around 16,777,000 colors but some older models tend to use 16 bit displays that can display around 65,000 colors
