New to Jujitsu, gi color meaning?

I'm starting BJJ within the next few weeks and was searching online for a gi. Does the color of the gi itself (not the belt obviously) have any significance? In other words, if I show up as a newbie in a red or blue gi, does that mean something? Or should I just buy a white one. Also, what about patches? Basicaly, I just want to know if it's offensive or just a bad idea to show up in anything other than a plain white gi. Thanks!

Looking for MT and Bjj academy in NH or MA

Goal is to be 170 pounds by end of summer. I was 155 4 years ago.

Hey Kurt,

Let me answer your question!

I am from Brazil and we have the best Gi beeing manufactured here, so, if you wanna buy good stuff here is a website that sells sevral good national brands in Brazil.

Now regarding your question...
No, it does not have problem if you show up in yellow, blue, white, red or black GI for practing... Now if you go to a championship you should go with blue or white, the others colors is more for practing and the Black GI normally is for black belts only!
If you need anything else, just ask.
