The central pictorial vignette on this 1948 stamp of British Honduras is in blue. The frame is green.
The central vignette is often surrounded by a frame which may be printed separately and is normally of a different colour. The plate from which the vignette is printed is known as the vignette plate.
Printing errors have sometimes led to the vignette being inverted. Perhaps the most famous example is the Inverted Jenny.
A different use of the term vignette in philately is to describe publicity labels or poster stamps which do not have postal validity, such as those produced in France during World War One by Delandre.
