Graphics[Thread[{Reverse[Hue /@ Subdivide[0, 1, 11]], 
   Disk[#, 1] & /@ (RotateRight[(Sqrt[2] + Sqrt[6])*CirclePoints[12], 
      5])}]]

    $\begingroup$ More compact version: Graphics[MapIndexed[{Hue[1 - #2/12], Disk[#, 1]} &, CirclePoints[{Sqrt[2] + Sqrt[6], 5 π/6}, 12]]] $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 27, 2021 at 6:18
