Symbols of all sorts are used to identify political, social and religious factions. Here we give a guide to the more important ones. Flags of states, factions, houses, cities and individuals are located on the pages pertaining to them.
Amanne has traditionally been associated with the colors blue and white. The flag of Nels was blue with a white circle. The Elk was associated to the north before the time of Nels, and is the symbol of the city of Ralan. The silver flame uses a white torch on blue as its emblem, and silver-plated torch sculptures are common decorations in temples. A flaming silver sword is a variation of this. Southern churches use the ruby as a symbol, dating back to the time of Brendan. A crimson sword with a silver flame for example, was the symbol of the First Brendenburgh State. Zeroll has always been associated with the color purple.
Moqol has traditionally been associated with the color red, and early moqolese flags were just red banners. The ancient symbol of Moqol is a triangle of three black dots. A black triangle is a common variation, and is the emblem of the city of Moq. The imperial seal is two equilateral triangles side by side, like a sideways hourglass. Variations on this theme are common in vassals to the empire.
