Prussian Blue Persuation (1769) - Freddie Great & the Prussians
(Original: Crystal Blue Persuation)

Look at the war screen
What do you see?
The Reich is a-risin'
Most definitely
A new update's comin', whoo-hoo
Borders are changin'
What a time to do, whoo-hoo
Prussian blue persuasion

Better get ready
Gonna see the might
War, war is the answer, whoo-hoo
And that's all right
So don't you give up now, whoo-hoo
So easy to fight
Just mind the aggressive... (Look at expansion!)
To peace out just right

Prussian blue persuasion
Mm-hmm
It's recoloration
Prussian blue persuasion
Prussian
Blue persuasion

Maybe tomorrow
When @Johan looks down
On every blue blob, whoo-hoo
And every town
All of his subjects
In every nation
There'll be iron and blood
Old Fritz's hat*
Prussian blue persuasion
Yeah

Prussian blue persuasion, aha
Prussian blue persuasion, aha
Prussian blue persuasion, aha (Oh)
Prussian blue persuasion, aha
Prussian blue persuasion, aha
Prussian blue persuasion, aha
Prussian blue persuasion, aha

*I wanted to write "Bismarck's hat" but since he's out of the timeframe I decided to only include his quote in a previous verse.

EDIT: Added some context if someone didn't get the reference. ;)

I know people like Prussian blue Prussia very much but personally I always thought that cold steel grey fits militaristic heartless absolutist country very nicely.

More simply, we should simply be able to pick our country colors. And (less simply) there should be an option to change/invent a new color as soon as countries with the same color borders touch.

I know people like Prussian blue Prussia very much but personally I always thought that cold steel grey fits militaristic heartless absolutist country very nicely.
I could get behind this argument but to me light grey as a country colour is just... ugly. There are very few grey nations: HRE, Prussia, Yarkand, Teutonic Order... I think that's it.

I imagine most people wouldn't mind the change to Prussian blue, many will be happy and I doubt anyone would really miss the grey. Nontheless, @Frederic III's solution sounds the best - but is it applicable?

I think it would be a better color for Germany
It's already HRE's colour. Germany used to be grey back at the game's release(or was it BETA?) but Paradox changed it, probably because of HRE.

I think HRE does have a slight green tint to it, but Germany now is much more Blue-Grey looking to me than just plain old grey.


Still, the Prussian blue is completely different from the rest of the blues presented in game (almost black-blue), and I disagree with Johan for that reason
