Regimental Colour and Uniform of the Kholodniyy Borscht Infantry Regiment

The city of Kholodniyy Borscht in the province of Krashdipezantsk presents its own infantry regiment for review.

Known in the province as 'The Unbeetables', the regiment has been raised by the merchants and beet farmers of the city.

The regimental colours display The Beet Rampant in gold, with the Velikye Byelgorodniyan crown above, and the Cyrillic initials of the city to either side.

The regimental colours are echoed in the soldiers' uniforms, which are dyed using pigments derived from the finest beets. The coat buttons are emblazoned with The Beet Rampant.

The regimental quick march is The Beet of a Different Drummer, while the slow march is an arrangement of the popular folk song, The Beet My Heart Missed.
