Interesting Thematic.

I check a lot of videos to give you a awnser.... but its more difficult as i expect !

Pictures won´t work.... Cause mostly you can not clearly say if this picture is from a Real Cockpit or of a Sim.
So i check Cockpit Videos in Youtube.....
And there i see most Crews not use the Key-Backlight while a Night departure. In some Videos you see they activate the flood light of Pedestal if they need to make a Entry but the Keys seems to be fully dark or verry dimmed.

In the rare videos, where the Backlight was on and vissible, it is hard to define the color. Pretty sure in case of bad light conditions and poor cameras the Light looks "dirty white" , beige or maybe orange. But i think it is white !.

What i can say from all videos.... the Backlight got the same Color like all other backlights.... And they are also white as i know.
Good Luck !

There is a warm white (with a bit of yellow), cold white (bit of blue) and normal white (like the light of the sun).
Try Wikipedia for wavelenght and more details ;-)
