I believe the pooblem the sable scroll was bringing up
was that she has had a couple of people paint things
like sable cranes (or "black" cranes) other colors.
While the idea of mixing yellow's and gold does bring
up some interesting discussion, I don't see how there
would be a problem at kingdom level. I personally
tend to go with either yellow or gold and not both.
