If you're identifying color for pretty much anything digital, you're working in an RGB colorspace. If the project you're working on requires percentage representation, crimson is made of 86% red, 8% green, and 24% blue.
If you're identifying color for a print project, you're most likely using a CMYK colorspace—the percentages are 0% cyan, 91% magenta, 73% yellow, 14% black.
