In the Dundorfian, later Dorvish military Waffenfarbe (Dundorfian: "corps colour") is a means the armed forces use to distinguish between different corps or troop functions in its armed services. The Waffenfarbe might be the colour of the collar patch, of the piping (coloured edging) around the shoulder boards or shoulder marks and — for enlisted ranks — of the piping around the collar and the garrison cap (Schiffchen). (In the latter places, NCO's wear cords of dark gold, officers silver, and generals gold.) Currently, only the Dorvish Army and the Dorvish Police make extensive use of the Waffenfarbe, the Dorvish Air Force make limited use while the Dorvish Navy do not distinguish with Waffenfarbe.
