The BTS section suggest that they have phoenixes on their t-shirts. Phoenixes are scarlet. Couldn't it be a large depiction of golden snidgets?--Rodolphus (talk) 11:51, August 15, 2019 (UTC)

Phoenixes do have golden plumage. If you look at it from a design perspective, it would look better if in was in gold. The reasoning for describing a large, golden bird was probably to connect the two to the Order of the Phoenix, but I guess that's why this is in BTS because it's unconfirmed. It was set in the time they would have joined the Order of the Phoenix. But I guess it could be a golden snidget, even though I find it unlikely.
Something to add to the 1977 / 1978 debate in James Potter's edit history. J.K. Rowling stated it was "around three years before Harry's birth", not that it was precisely three years. It's kinda vague so I guess it could be 1978. - Kates39 (talk) 12:25, August 15, 2019 (UTC)
Around 3 years just means around - as it's not precise, I just changed the date setting to be around 1977. I often think time in Rowling's mind is like one of those "12-ish, 1-ish, etc-ish" clocks. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:44, August 15, 2019 (UTC)
I agree, it was taken too literal. I have amended James Potter's page too. - Kates39 (talk) 20:39, August 15, 2019 (UTC)

Where are phoenixes described as golden in canon? I'm sure they are described as scarlet in both CS and FB. They have golden talons, though.--Rodolphus (talk) 13:48, August 15, 2019 (UTC)

In FB, they were described as having a "long golden tail, beak and talons". And in COS, Fawkes was described like that too: he had "glittering golden tail as long as a peacock's and gleaming golden talons" and a "long golden beak". I would say gold was a very noticeable and defining feature of a phoenix, and kinda powerful. I guess it's understandable people will connect them to that colour. - Kates39 (talk) 15:02, August 15, 2019 (UTC)
