A private court used to peacefully settle disputes between Brentaal's noble houses. Colors have an important symbolic meaning on Brentaal—as a noble house comes to power, its colors become the planet's official colors (the ruling house's flag becomes Brentaal's flag, Brentaal's vessels are painted in the ruling colors and officers wear a sash with the ruling colors, etc.). The Color Guard began in the 2,000's BBY as an armed force that secured the peaceful transition of power from one house to another. It has since evolved into a private court the noble houses appeal to for power-sharing disputes and other issues the noble families prefer to keep out of the public courts.
