Hi everybody
just out of pure curiosity, do durham colleges have traditional colours and scarves as oxbridge colleges do?
And if yes,what are they?

p.s.: sorry if there has been already a thread like this,I tried to find one but I was unsuccessful (which doesn't necessarily mean that there isn't one somewhere...)

I believe the Castle ones are cardinal with white stripes. There's a shop in town somewhere that sells them, I have no idea where though as I am not a rah.

Yes, you can get scarves in college colours, although only pretentious pseudo-rahs wear them, which is a shame really, cos it'd be nice to be able to wear college colours without people thinking you're a ******

As said all colleges have colours, I've been familarised with some of them by watching rowing.

Aidans - Green white and maroon/red
Collingwood - red white and black
Hild Bede - pale blue and royal blue
Hatfield - blue with tiger sometimes
Castle - cardinal (maroon)
Cuths - dark green
Chads - correct me if I'm wrong but seems to be dark green too
johns - no idea

oh I see....well I didn't think that it would be a "rah" things to wear scarves....
(I guess it's something to do with snobbery though being a poor Hungarian girl still struggeling with certain English expressions, I might be wrong... )
anyway thanks for replying

Does this mean if you wear any type of College stash you're automatically labelled a rah?

Noooooooo, almost everyone wears it.
There just seems to be this 'rah' stereotype attached to scarves..

Castle is cardinal and white, and I believe Mary's and John's also have cardinal (or similar).
Wearing scarves isn't rah, it's sensible in the cold weather, it's wearing college scarves that's pseudo-rah. Rahs wear pashminas (i.e. ridiculous scarves) anyway.
