The picture is a computer mock-up as a model hasn't been stitched

The background of the original sampler is filled with cross stitch in shades 537/3736/3362. An alternative to stitching the background would be to stitch your sampler on fabric which matches this shade of green.

However, if you are stitching the sampler in remembrance of a family member who served in the navy or air force, you may wish to change the background colour. For example, in Britain navy blue is representational for the Royal Navy and blue-grey or Wedgwood blue for the Royal Air Force (RAF)
