Default Uniform Colors: Starfleet Intelligence

We never get to see a member of Starfleet Intelligence branch(that I'm aware of). In various non-canon game supplements I've seen them designated "greyshirts", "blackshirts" and "goldshirts".

Which of the three colors we saw (Gold, Blue or Red) do you picture as the branch color and why?

Gold was a color denoting Command, so perhaps that would be the one?

I picture a mix of the goldshirts/blueshirts to blend in. The Section 31 types? Whatever they want to wear to be inconspicuous.

Officially they would have (probably) had the standard Red uniform of the Security forces. Whilst on operations they'd wear whatever was suitable for the mission.

All good answers. This is why I asked the question because a case could be made for any color.
Gold: It's a Command supporting function and a fairly autonomous Command skill job.
Blue: What better way to blend in while doing scans and asking questions than as a Science officer?
Red: Fits in as per the function of providing security to Starfleet and being mistaken for an Engineer while scanning buildings and systems etc. wouldn't hurt.
Black/Other: It did seeem to be the color of choice for Section 31 and would set the branch apart. I used to think that if there were an Administrative branch they could share the colors Black or Gray since an administrative functionary would blend in well.

Still open to viewpoints/arguements....

Thanks for reading people.

I like the idea of black, but red gets my vote.

I would rather see Intelligence fall under the gold Command branch, but if it's considered more a line of defense than anything else, then it'd have to fall under Operations red, IMO.

SI agents working undercover shouldn't wear any uniform as to not attract any attention to them during a secret mission.

Gold or red, both seemed to be command colors at one point in Star Trek time.
