Though you could do the different colors as you will, color (tincture) is
part of the registration of the award. And I believe tinctureless is not
allowed any longer (correct me if I misstate - I believe it derives from Don
Robin's mustache). So each color should, in theory, be separately
registered. But you can use what you like without registration (I hope the
other heralds don't come for me with torches and pitchforks).

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.
