Set color of second selected object

I know I can set the color of the active object (when displayed as wireframe) by setting the Active Object color in Themes/3D View.

However, if you select two objects (right click followed by shift + right-click), the second object is always a sort of orange. I could not find an option in the Themes that seemed to correspond to this "second selected object" color.

Is there a way to set this color?

To change the color of selected objects in the 3D_view go to : User_Preferences->Theme->3D_view->Selected_object

The two different colours here are because there's an active object and selected object. If you have 1 object selected in your sceen, then that object is also the active object, if you have two..or three..or tens selected, then the last selected object is known as the active object.

Because @Chebhou already gives the UI version of an answer, here a scripted version which can be just as handy:

In the console:

theme = bpy.context.user_preferences.themes[0]
theme.view_3d.object_active = (0.8, 0.8, 0.5)
theme.view_3d.object_selected = (0.8, 0.8, 0.9)
