Having white on the guernsey doesn't make it an official club colour
So... You guys are red and black then? Or, red and white? Or, black and white? 🤨

Sure, we could use that logic for North. They had black numbers for a majority of their history before their jumper switch-around. Hawks had a white number panel on their guernseys.
We're different. Our emblem, the main part of our identity is a white logo on a navy base. All the trimming on the shorts and socks is white. That makes it a club colour.
Proves my point. Sure, orange may have been used in 1870, but if we didn't have white as a traditional club colour for our emblem, we wouldn't have cared about using orange for our clash jumpers or anything like that (like the orange-outlined CFC on the rumoured clash found by magpienato and caloschwaby 🤮)

St Kilda's official club colours are red black and white, and are also on our guernsey. colours and guernsey are 2 different things. West Coast had a white panel on their for years, but isn't a club colour

... What?
The guernsey is another important part of the branding. Of course white was a club colour. It may not have been on their logo (hah, orange was back then - that's a whole 'nother convo) but now it wouldn't be considered a club colour.

It is common for club constitutions to state what the official colours of the club are. They could wear a guernsey of a different colour entirely but it doesn't mean that the guernsey represents the official club colours.

E.g. North constitution:

"the colours of the Club shall be blue and white and the uniform of the Players shall be the uniform which is from time to time registered with the AFL. "

Exactly!

Yes, and I accept North's main colours are Royal and White. But they have been that way for 100s of years, much like the Blues' white CFC on the guernsey, and all their logos for that matter. We may call ourselves the navy blues, but that's because the majority of our kit is navy. White is still an important part of it, otherwise you'd start looking like Norwood in the SANFL (who for the record are red and navy blue, despite only having the collar, cuffs and socks red!) :)
