The crown ribbon is 9 ligne club grey and binding is 4 ligne blue grey. The felt is a chameleon and varies from gray, to blue-gray, to a very pale green (sage). Michael chose the ribbon and binding colors and I approved. To my eye, the colors all work together well and complement each other. The green is very pale but in most light I can see the green. Michael had been calling it gray in our emails until I told him it was sage. Per Wikipedia, the color is defined thus: “Sage is a grey-green...” and I’d say this qualifies, albeit the green is very subdued; not a St. Patrick’s Day kind of green.
