Ought reference (somewhere) be made to the use of white in English heraldry, for the label attached to the Royal Arms for the Heir Apparent, or does this only commence after period ?
It is mentioned on the page for label.
Saying a "man proper would be pale pink (in Europe at least)" is extremely questionable as there would be no question whatsoever in period of a man not being shown this way and not for some time after period. The only exception are some very, very unusual (and rather avant-garde, if you will) contemporary emblazonments. --Daniel C. Boyer 10:44, 16 Dec 2005 (CST)
