After a neck-and-neck fight between red and blue, The 193rd Semiannual General Conference tie tracker ended in a tie.
Scroll tracked the colors of all the speakers’ outfits throughout general conference. Scroll‘s list follows anyone who comes to the podium, including those who conduct the session or give prayers.
President Russell M. Nelson’s red striped tie closed a conference that had seen blue ties lead through most of the sessions.
The First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles led a tight battle. Red and blue were split evenly at five each, until Elder Dale G. Renlund and President Nelson both spoke in red ties during the Sunday afternoon session.
The only outliers were Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf in green and Elder Gerrit W. Gong and President Henry B. Eyring in black.
On Sunday, President Eyring switched from a plain blue tie to a black striped tie, snagging two spots on the list. President Dallin H. Oaks kept his same red tie for both days, so he is only scored once.
Ties with intricate circle patterns seemed popular among speakers in the Saturday morning session. President Dallin H. Oaks, Elder David A. Bednar and Elder Ian. S. Ardern all wore ties with a similar design.
The Saturday afternoon session had a clash of the tans, as both Jan E. Newman of the Sunday School General Presidency and Elder Joaquin E. Costa, General Authority Seventy, wore the exact same tie in back-to-back talks.
The most vibrant tie award has to go to Elder Christophe G. Giraud-Carrier, who rocked a gold paisley tie with purple highlights in the Sunday afternoon session.
