Cologne Blue was originally part of core MediaWiki. In MediaWiki 1.24, it, along with the other default skins, was separated from core to its own repository. It remained bundled with MediaWiki until it was removed from the bundle in version 1.31. It uses hooks which were deprecated in MediaWiki 1.39, producing warning messages in this version.
