In Testimonium...

Did purple, green and gold become the de facto colors of Mardi Gras in America because the Krewe of Rex, formed by New Orleans businessmen in 1872 and charged with the responsibility for throwing a lavish reception for a visiting Russian dignitary, chose those hues to honor Grand Duke Alexei Alexandrovich? Perhaps. His coat of arms bears red, blue, gold, black and white. Twenty years later the same Krewe of Rex unveiled the symbolism of those three official colors: purple for justice, green for faith and gold for power.
