The Prussian Postal Administration proposed in 1861 to use a uniform color scheme for the stamps used in the German Austrian Postal Union. Despite the different currencies, it would be immediatly clear if the right stamp was used on a letter. The colors used were red, blue and brown. Some examples of these stamps:
Examples for Baden
Examples for Bavaria.
The 1 g, 2 g and 3 g of Brunswick of 1865 were produced in the proposed colors red, blue and brown.
