DYK: Did you know?
“True Blue” or “Coventry Blue” comes from the blue cloth that was made at Coventry, England in the late middle ages. The town’s dyers had a reputation for producing material that didn’t fade with washing. The town’s standing was recorded in 1670 by John Ray in the first edition of A Compleat Collection of English Proverbs:
“Coventry had formerly the reputation for dying of blues; insomuch that true blue became a Proverb to signify one that was always the same and like himself.”
