Answered: Clarification on <R19c> Alliance Identification

In the Robot Rules, rule <R19c> states

My question is, are we required to change what color our plates are to correspond with the alliance color every time we change alliances or can we have the plates to be one color all the time and when we are on the other alliance, we put a flag with that alliance's color?
For example, we have red plates on our robot at all times and attach a blue flag when on the blue alliance. This is how our league ran for Skyrise and I was wondering if it was the same for NBN.
Any clarification you can provide is helpful.

As stated in <R19c>, which you quoted in your post, Robots must use the coloured plates that match their alliance colour for each Match. Using a flag in lieu of the proper coloured plate is not acceptable. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to swap plates, consider using VEX IQ Pins or Velcro.
