The correspondence is 1 to 1: a letter / number always corresponds to a symbol (for letters, upper case and lower case are not differentiated).
Any message encrypted by Hexahue is in a rather colorful image format with a maximum of 9 distinct colors: red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, majenta, white, gray and black.
The symbols are made up of combinations of 6 colored squares grouped into a rectangle 3 high by 2 wide.
The letters are coded with the 6 primary and secondary colors: red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, majenta and never have the same color twice.
The digits/figures are coded with 3 levels of gray: white, gray and black, with mandatory 2 squares of each shade.
The punctuation (the point . And the comma ,) is coded with only black and white (3 black squares and 3 white squares staggered)
The spaces are either all black or all white.
