The colors seem to be medium blue and medium gray, with the logo in darker shade of grey (though apparently not black). The lettering is not visible on the photo [seen in airport in Singapore] - this image shows it in the same shade as the logo out of conjecture.

"The Boeing Company is an American multinational corporation that designs, manufactures, and sells fixed-wing aircraft, rotorcraft, rockets and satellites. It also provides leasing and product support services. Boeing is among the largest global aircraft manufacturers, is the second-largest aerospace & defense contractor in the world based on 2012 revenue and is the largest exporter in the United States by dollar value. Boeing was incorporated in Seattle by William Boeing,
on July 15, 1916, as "Pacific Aero Products Co.".
In 1934, the United States government accused William Boeing of monopolistic practices. The same year, the Air Mail Act forced airplane companies to separate flight operations from development and manufacturing. William Boeing divested himself of ownership as his holding company, United Aircraft and Transport Corporation, broke into three separate entities:
United Aircraft Corporation, holding the former eastern US manufacturing (now United Technologies Corporation)
Boeing Airplane Company, with western US manufacturing, which later became The Boeing Company
United Air Lines for flight operations"
Their corporate headquarters are located in Chicago. Boeing is organized into five primary divisions: Boeing Commercial Airplanes (BCA); Boeing Defense, Space & Security(BDS); Engineering, Operations & Technology; Boeing Capital; and Boeing Shared Services Group.
Over the years it has acquired several other important manufacturers such as McDonnell, Douglas, North American, Hughes, Rockwell, Rocketdyne, etc.
