The standard yellow box deck - especially in the older editions - is pretty close to the correct colors. Yes, there is some minor variation. The other editions all have colors that are slightly modified - for instance, the PCS Commemorative Deck has a brown tinge (antiquing) to make it look old. It affects some colors more than others.

Lots of people have lists of standard color meanings in the GD tradition. Probably the best 'original' source of these color meanings is found in Paul Foster Case's book _The Tarot: A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages_. I highly recommend this book anyway.
