    Did you know that those words describe a coat of arms?

    (Not any specific one, though. I just made it up for this thread.)

    I got the gist but didn’t understand all of it.

    I normally put a coat on my arms.

    Prior to this post I wasn’t familiar with the word “gules” but the description seems highly unlikely.

    gules

    ?yo?olz/

    noun

    noun: gules

    red, as a heraldic tincture.

    (And I had assumed it meant gold, i.e. yellow.)

    My gules means you obey my rules.

    Coming back to this now, I realized that if “gules” was red,
    “rouge,” which I had thought was red in this context, might
    not be. This turned out to be correct. “Rouge” is not part
    of heraldic terminology, and its inclusion was a mistake.
