To show a Chapter or Legion's colour scheme, one should create their own artwork. This avoids copying offical artwork. This Wiki has numerous blank templates so you can create unooficla diagrams to show colour schemes.

The colour scheme image should only be colours, not symbols or markings. Markings and symbols can be detailed in a different part of the article.

The table below shows which images are not allowed and which are allowed.
