Greetings from Solveig! White is the only "reserved" belt color. The
others are conventional. Further, most colors are already taken. I
recall encountering places where black and brown are reserved.
Further, a queen once mistook my brown belt for a yellow belt.

the only color that will seriously disjoint people's noses.

Being a squire is not a rank or title within the Society itself. A
number of years ago, Firebrand Herald (a member of the Order of the
Pelican) was trying to put together a group of people who would wear
all of the unofficial bling (and especially red belts) that exists in
the Society at some prominent event such as Pennsic.
