I'd guess it was indigo then, dyed with the indigo plant.

Obviously coat colours are something that is a subject of countless debates, but I would imagine that a Sealed Knot regiment would have done a fair amount of research to arrive at an educated guess at the very least. they have a web page with lots of nice photo's on it, so I may well paint up a unit. Anyone know what design they used on their nice purple flag? Although I may ask them myself via email.
