Bit confused by SPQR???...I'm assuming you mean the banner.....or Vexillum to the Romans. Ironically that is actually Blue with a yellow (gold) Scorpion...the word Praetoria and Cohors III on....it didn't come out too well in the photo! The purple scheme i was thinking about is only a stripe/band along the edge of the white or off white tunic...i think there is a picture in Osprey's Praetorian Guard book.(very worth the money y the way.........ebay or amazon.).....My Tribune has a purple and white sash around his middle...a bit like that....a hint of purple.....purple was only worn by emperors as it was hugely expensive and rare.
All my praetorian tunics and cloaks are in Black...Highlight with two sahdes of grey............caesar has his top half in Purple and a white toga.
