Players started the event by speaking to Gilbert, a leprechaun found in the Lumbridge Castle courtyard. Gilbert would request the player to gather six strands of colours from rainbows found throughout Gielinor. Each colour represents a specific meaning based on the rainbow flag in real-life.
Once the player gives Gilbert all six strands, he rewarded players with the rainbow scarf.
Each of the clues refers to the meaning of one of the stripes on the rainbow flag.
|Red||"South of my magical location, I see life! New adventurers and baldness rife."||South of the Wizards' Tower.||Life|
|Orange||"Beside me now, a person of healing. Those who test their luck, find this place appealing."||East of the Duel Arena bank.||Healing|
|Yellow||"On my face; shining sunlight. South of a dwarf whom redberries delight."||The southern point of Mudskipper Point.||Sunlight|
|Green||"Lush natures and trees are to the east. The Green strand... no orange! No, blue! No, red! Green! Argh! There's so much bickering in this area it's hard to pinpoint its location..."||The entrance of the Goblin Village.||Nature|
|Blue||"In this area, there's a silent and artistic harmony... Ironically, north west, wizards kill newcomers effortlessly."||In the rams' pen, south of Varrock.||Serenity|
|Purple||"The knights in this area, are full of Saradomin's spirit. On the top of this fortress, when I yell - all hear it!"||On the top floor of the White Knights' Castle, just upstairs of Sir Amik Varze.||Spirit|
Gilbert's Colours was a controversial event. Upon announcement of the event on Mod Wolf's Twitter account, it had many mixed opinions in the Old School RuneScape community, so much so that it received outside media coverage.
