Black And Gold: Why Are The Saints Colors Black And Gold?

Why is the New Orleans Saints colors black and gold this year at the Superbowl?
My dad told me something about South Louisiana and how it has historically been a hub for the oil industry. A nickname for oil is "Black Gold". And he says that from the phrase came the Saints colors Black And Gold.
Is this story true? Sometimes he likes to mess with me.
Can you tell me the real story of the black and white Saints Colors?

For easy recognition during the Super Bowl 2010 Championship fight, the Saints as NFC representatives will wear white jerseys with gold pants.
The Saint's colors, black and gold, symbolized both Mecom's and New Orleans' strong ties to the oil ("black gold") industry.

That is the reason for the Black and Gold colors.

Super Bowl XLIV pitting the NFC Champion New Orleans Saints v. The AFC Champion Indianapolis Colts will be a game filled with passes and trick plays. It will be one of the most exciting Super Bowls ever.
