The Barony of Sundragon does something similar. their Symbol is a rainbow and their different awards are based upon the colors in the heraldic rainbow.

>Not a bad idea, I think.  I know of at least one Barony that did something similar.  Dun Or, in Caid, had baronial awards in the shape of Oreo cookies (Dun Oreos), and they came in different colors for different awards: red for fighting, black for service, green for arts.
