A ring of fire on a field of black.

This is Modru's flag representing an annular eclipse of the sun. Modru designed this flag anticipating the time when his conquest of Mithgar would mean Adon's light shines no more.

Crossed silver axes on a field of black.

This flag is displayed in more than one Dwarvenholt, all in Durek's line (Kraggen-cor, the Red Hills, Mineholt North, and Kachar).

Arden Vale:
An Eld Tree on a field of grey.

The tall and narrow Elven banner denotes the height of the Eld Tree (a tree somewhat like a sequoia, but with leaves instead of needles and reaching heights of a thousand feet). This particular banner represents the Lone Eld Tree growing just inside the hidden southern entrance of Arden Vale. The field of grey signifies not only the twilight shed by these trees when Elvenkind is near, but also the general neutrality of Elves in the internal affairs of mankind and the folk of Fey. It is said that when the Lone Eld Tree is no more, no longer will Elves dwell in Arden Vale.

A silver circle on a field of blue.

The circle represents the ring of Rimmen Mountains, a singular feature of Riamon.

A white horse rampant on a field of green.

A white falcon on a field of blue.

There are several versions of this particular national flag: a falcon stooping (diving); a falcon in flight in profile; a falcon's head in profile; and various other versions of a white falcon on a field of blue.

A maroon field.

(To match the sails of the ships of the Rovers of Kistan)

The only authority the Rovers of Kistan recognize is a council of ships' captains. Hence, the Kistanian flag itself bears no device. However, each ship's captain is free to add his own ship's symbol to the maroon field.

The Fists of Rakka:
A white fist on a black field.

(Rakka: another name for Gyphon)

There are several other versions of the Fists of Rakka flag: a black fist on a white field, a crimson fist on a black field, a black fist on a crimson field, and so on, all featuring a clenched fist centered in a field, where the colors represent the given Cult of the Fist.

A red star on a yellow field.

This is the flag of the Mogul—the Warlord of Warlords—of Jûng. There are many warlords in Jûng, each with his (or her) own feifdom; in general, each of these warlords has a flag of his own, the design of which represents that warlord. Yet in spite of their own internal warfare to gain the territory of another, they occasionally unite under a single Mogul, one who has come to power through warfare within Jûng, or (rarely) has been elected by the other warlords, or more likely at the behest of the priests of the Jìdu Shàngdi (another name for Gyphon). The Mogul always uses this flag, though he (or she) retains his own flag as well.
