Heraldry. An art born out of necessity and developed out of symbolic thought. We're seeing colours every day, but did we ever stop and wonder what they mean?

Purple is associated with Tyrian Purple, the color of the imperators of the Roman Empire. Later Imperators created sumptuary laws preventing all others from utilizing this dye in addition to it's already prohibitive high cost of production.

so if i was to make a coat of arms and it happened to be a grey/dark-grey/silver background with a white-faced ghost in the centre with black eyes and a blood-red mouth what would that symbolize... i may have made this coat of arms just out of my favorite colours and mythological creature and now i'm curious as to how it would have been received on the battlefield...

England is the one with the bright red and white, France is the one with the dark blue and golden fleur-de-lys, Spain is the one with the red and yellow checkers, Italy is the one with the yellow surrounded by a black or red hawk/rooster, Germany is the one with the white and yellow cross or yellow and black eagle, Poland is the one with the red and white eagle, Russia is the one with the ancient-looking golden armor with tall helmets, Portugal is the one with the blue with the red X and golden fleur-de-lys, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland are vikings, Scotland is the one with the light blue and white X or just a heavy kilt and some padding.
