To be precise ... Blue and Murrey.

Azure is heraldic nonsense which has no place with Livery in the Yorkist period.

Actually the colour scheme is red for the enemy's blood. But also provision for blue royal blood :D
Not sure re the yellow yet -- unless someone is jaundiced!

We're 'The Companie of Glaston'. Just attended our first event and hope to see some of you at Templecombe, Tatton and Berkeley.

Does it really pay to advertise? I'd rather not have anyone batting at me with any sort of weapon/implement more threatening than a jelly baby...

Welcome to the site (And perhaps to the hobby?)

Although your comment plus a picture of a hen might indicate that you are chicken...

Yes, it certainly is a chicken, well Hen really - a hen upon a hill, so Henneberg.
If you've seen the Osprey Publishing book on the Teutonic Knights, there's a painting by Graham Turner of a knight in full harness, so I'm getting pieces of that made up (though blued) and as that character was from Henneberg Romhild and as I used to keep hens in the back garden which looked remarkably similar; well you get the idea.
My interest in re-enactment is pretty shallow. Armour.
I think the german/gothic style is absolutely the best. Just need to make sure I don't put on any weight before it's finished...
Presently, in my far from complete kit, I get invites to local events. No swordplay, purely display, smile at the punters and hope they're not too scared to chats-a-bitsy. Hope to get more mainstream eventually, with my brother and a few friends.

That's a good start. I find that at least in English events most visitors are more chatty than in Scotland, or at least it is easier to start talking.

When it's been dry enough to look upwards at WotR/15th C events, people might have noticed our household standard. An Agnus Dei on an azure background, we are the English Free Companye:

On our jacks we wear the Milano House of Sforza crest on our left arm, as we would have been a mercenary household plying our trade around Europe after the Hundred Years War, and an IHS applique as a 'lucky charm' on our right:

The applique is sewn on roughly, as it's supposed to look like it was done by the soldier the jack belongs to, to bring them luck. Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Well, the jack is far from being as pristine as it was, so 'shiney' no more.

Blue and white, quartered, bisected with the red cross of st George. General hangars, blue and white, quartered. Skull reminding us of mortality as well as an allegorical take on my baldness ;-)
Wings: protection of God and the host/religious; bees: industrious and honest. Longwood: weapon of choice to smite foes.
