* In a given game there is commonly one team wearing white, though whether this is the home or away team depends on the sport (in professional leagues the home team usually wears white in baseball and basketball, while white is the road team's color in American football and ice hockey). The other team goes for black less frequently since their fans don't usually think of themselves as evil.

In some cases teams may decide to switch it up - American football teams in the Southern United States, such as the Miami Dolphins, sometimes wear their white jerseys for a September home game because it is ''really'' hot and humid that time of year and forcing the visiting team to wear darker-colored jerseys can tire them out faster.[[/note]].

* In Avalon Hill's ''Rise and Decline of the Third Reich'' the German counters are black with bone-white markings, evoking the colors of death. Their minor allies are a dull, lifeless-looking gray, while the Italians are a sickly light green. The Western allies are much more colorful, while the Soviets are a neutral-looking brown.

Red is considered good within the Realm and bad anywhere else, since it's the color of ''Scarlet'' Empress.
