I used blue and bronze to highlight my closest relation because... I'm a Ravenclaw!
How it was determined: About 10 years ago, I made several accounts on Pottermore to find out my average Hogwarts house test results (just for the sake of accuracy), and most of them put me in Ravenclaw. Just a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned what I was to a coworker, and she laughed that it didn't surprise her.
