It depends on what color scheme you have enabled. System color schemes are in $VIMRUNTIME/colors. On my system that is /usr/share/vim/vim72/colors. You may also have color schemes in ~/.vim/colors on your system if you are using a color scheme you added yourself to your vim profile. If you are using the default theme, that would be default.vim.
