I am not sure if anybody was able to tackle this subject, but finally after
hours of trolling the internet i came to this quite ugly solution - which
is partial but at least it changes the colors.
So, without further ado here you go:

# i hope i remembered all the pertinent libraries i needed.

gr <- graph_from_data_frame(flare$edges, vertices = flare$vertices)

palette1 <- colorRampPalette(c("darkviolet","orange", "forestgreen",

hex <- palette1(252)

gr<- as_tbl_graph(gr)

gr <- gr %>%
    activate(nodes) %>%
    mutate(hex = ifelse(name, as.character(myHSB$hex)[shortName], NA)) %>%
    activate(edges) %>%
    mutate(hex = .N()$hex[to] == 'hex')

gr1 <- gr
gr1 <- gr1 %>%
    activate(nodes) %>%
mutate(hex=palette1(252)) %>%
activate(edges) %>%

laygr<- create_layout(gr1, layout = 'partition', circular=TRUE)

colsgr <- laygr$hex

ggraph(gr1, layout = 'partition', circular = TRUE) +
theme_graph(background="grey20", border=FALSE)+

This code does actually changes the node colors, although it is still not
very clear in which order .... i tried different orders / sort solutions,
none very exciting. But i did change the colors. If you have other ideas
how to do it, i will very much welcome it.
