A revised Union flag.
Wed Jul 19, 2017 8:53am

A fairly simple update: I've just updated the Burning Sun of Ozerbord to match the Ozerbord flag, and placed a reduced star-circle of the Discord in the middle.

The flag is now symbolic at least three ways:

The Five Nations of the Union: the Sword of Jay for Borrd, the Arrow of Acacia for the Riding, the Tome for Wechi, the Burning Sun for Ozerbord, and the Starry Arch for the Discord (and also for the Five Nations).

The Five Eras of Rule: The Tome for the rule of the Protectors, the Arrowhead for their three appointed Triumvirs, the Sword for the direct rule of the barons, the Sun for the first Union, and the five stars for the newly expanded Council of Plort.

The Five Ages of Plort: The Sword for the Golden Age, the Book for the Elder Age, the Arrow for the Age of Revolution, the Sun for the Age of Union, and the Stars for the Age of Change.

Subject to approval by anyone who wants to argue. ;)

              Baron Huinesoron most definitely regrets tying the worship of Spelin to the Diskord, and he doesn't believe for a second that Ye Scape-Grace is in any way devout. But that's because he's a grump. ^_^ ... more

                that the precise form of the worship of Spelin varies across Plort. For example, many priests in Borrd do not perform the Rite of Edyt in view of the congregation, unlike in Ozerbord, where this is... more
