Just purchased the game and setting up.

One thing I can't seem to find a guide for yet is the meaning of the NATO symbol colors on the counters.

Some things like Hungary vs Austria and division vs corps are self evident.

But some aren't like:
UK white vs blue, RU white vs red...not sure whether to draw from both during setup or not (and what they mean going forward)

Are you asking about "white print" units? I.e., white fill in the NATO symbol and white text below. Those units are still British, Russian, whatever - but their strength when flipped and out of supply is two, compared to one for "black print" units, whose NATO symbol is blue for British.

Yes, thank you. That is what I missed, that white symbol/text is a special unit feature.

So I guess I should include both white and normal INF in the pool, when I pick randomly during setup?

Yep, use 'em all. There are, however, OTHER distinctions between one INF and another that might affect set-up; for example, between CW INF that are United Kingdom units, vs CW INF that are Australian (or Canadian, Indian, South African, New Zealander).
