* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' combines this with SymbolMotifClothing. The Crystal Gems wear stars while Homeworld Gems wear diamonds, with the color of the diamond representing which one they work for. Peridot, who joined at the end of Season 2, still has her diamond at the start of Season 4... because she can't shapeshift and hasn't needed to reform. Also, some of the Crystal Gem's fusions, most notably Sardonyx and Rainbow Quartz, have a bit of the diamond insignia on them.

* In BandOfBrothers, one german soldier who talks with Easy Company after V-E Day is a veteran of both World Wars One and Two. He very distinctively still wears his World War One uniform.

* Thenardier in the ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' musical wears a Napoleonic uniform at the start of the play as a remnant from his supposed days as a soldier (if by soldier you mean "guy who looted corpses on the battlefield").

* In the ''Literature/XWingSeries'', Corran Horn's X-wing, flight suit and astromech droid still bear the green, black and grey colors of the [[SpacePolice Corellian Security Force]], since technically they all belong to him personally following his defection to the New Republic. This is also a double example, since Corran is commemorating his homeworld's security force as it was, before being turned into the "[[StateSec Public Safety Service]]."

* Isaac [=McDougal=] in ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'' is still wearing his Amestrian Army uniform. Given that most of his issues stem from what he did in Ishbal under Amestrian orders, this is understandable. He repeatedly tries to get other soldiers--Kimblee, Roy, Armstrong--onto his side as well.

** Meaningfully subverted with Athrun in ''Destiny''. In Seed he still wore his Zaft uniform and flight suit showing that deep down, he still believed in Zaft despite the path they had took. After another stint with Zaft in which case they again screwed him over and tried to eliminate him for not following the chairman's radical plan (in Seed it was his father who wanted to kill every Natural, in Destiny it's Durandal who wants to forcibly take control of the Earth sphere entirely) he returns to Orb and hangs up his Zaft coat for good, donning an Orb uniform and flight suit and showing that after 2 strikes Zaft is dead to him.
** In SEED, Mu calls Athrun out on this. Interestingly, Athrun isn't wearing a Zaft uniform at the time. Mu however, is wearing an Earth forces uniform.

* Factory-sponsored Ferraris in UsefulNotes/FormulaOne (and most other series they participate in) are the old Italian racing red. Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Chevrolet Corvette factory teams have raced in national colors (D=silver, USA=white/dark blue) in recent years as well, but that's sporadic while Ferrari has raced and used red continuously.

** The few franchised locations that were part of Blockbuster Video before it went belly-up in 2013 still fly their old colours, primarily because replacing them would be an unnecessary expense for a business on the way out.
