Basic Information:[edit]

Many combinations of azure and gules (blue and red), especially azure on gules and gules on azure, would be considered low contrast and would be un-registerable using the Core Style rules. They would have to be registered as an Individually Attested Pattern formerly known as a Regional Style Exception.
