a brief look into the timeline plugin source code reveals, that
the color codes were recently (well, about a year ago) changed
to match the "Structure" colorization scheme.

so if you now open the Graphics->Colors dialog,
select the Category: Structure and the Name: 3_10_Helix
you will see blue being highlighted in the Colors pane.

=> blue should stand for 3-10-Helix.
