Patrick Baty is a historic paint consultant. His weblog includes such gems as the Traditional British Colours used in the Coronation of King George VI, complete with the colours of the British army and heraldic colours: ‘There are five colours used in heraldry and two metals. Metals when not shown in gold or silver are represented by yellow and white respectively. It is one of the rules of heraldry that colour should not be placed on colour nor metal on metal and great care therefore, has to be taken in the use of white and gold in flag designing which is, strictly speaking, a branch of heraldry.’
