Ok, so recently I’ve been looking into the R.M.S Lusitania. But when looking at pictures/paintings of the ship, the colors of the funnels change from mostly orange with a black top, to completely black. I was wondering when the ship sank what colors where the funnels? Also, I’ve noticed how the H.M.H.S Britannic had completely yellow/orange funnels (Unlike the sister ships), did the colors of the funnels tell what kind of ship it was/what purpose it had?

On her last voyage Lusitania's funnels were painted in "war grey" again.
This was done to make it difficult for the Germans to recognize the the ship (every shipping line has its own funnel colours).

Hospital Ships as Britannic had mainly yellow painted funnels.
