The CrossField RebornNational flag: the CrossField Reborn -
       Field divided into two halves.
       The top half the color of black and grey impenetrable mists, representation of the Shadows: symbolizing the mystery of Reality.
       The bottom half completely black, representation of the Darkness: representing the unknowns of Reality.
       The Crux: a golden entanglement of seven symbols - a Cross, Ankh, Pentacle, Fairy Star, Medicine Wheel, Triquetra, and Awen - superimposed over both fields, symbolizing the myriad faiths and paths that comprise the Domain, and how we stand togeter to face head-on the mysteries and the unknowns of Reality.
       There are twenty-seven stars on the CrossField: representing the twenty-seven current realms in the Domain. Those who have rulers are colored in silver. Those that have not yet acquired their First Rulers - and are subsequently under imperial rule until rulers can be appointed - are colored in midnight-blue. As more Realms come under rule, a blue star will be colored white on the flag, representing them.
       Superimposed on the Crux is the Binary: a midnight-blue star rightside up, and a silver star behind it upside down, representing the Imperial District of Fantasia: from where the ur-Lord and High Queen rule the Domain.
The CrossField       (The former flag: the CrossField - Field divided into two halves. The top half the color of black and grey impenetrable mists, representation of the Shadows: symbolizing the mystery of Reality. The bottom half completely black, representation of the Darkness: representing the unknown of Reality. A golden cross superimposed over both fields: representing the faith and belief to face head-on the mysteries and the unknowns of Reality. There are twenty-seven stars on the CrossField: representing the twenty-seven current realms in the Domain. Those who have rulers are colored in silver. Those that have not yet acquired their First Rulers - and are subsequently under imperial rule until rulers can be appointed - are colored in midnight-blue. As more realms come under rule, a blue star will be colored white on the flag, representing them. Superimposed on the crux of the gold cross is a double star: a midnight-blue star rightside up, and a silver star behind it upside down. This represents the Imperial District of Fantasia: from where the ur-Lord and High Queen rule the Domain.)


National seal(s):
The Great Seal of the Domain Reborn -
       Derived from the CrossField Reborn, minus the stars. Seven mystickal animals are set at the fairy star points of the Crux:
       The Phoenix(perpetuality), the Dragon(strength), the Unicorn(purity and light), the Sphinx(mystery), the Gryphon(nobility), the Pegasus(freedom), and the Golem(resiliency).
       Superimposed upon the Crux are twenty-seven stars, representing the Twenty-Seven united Realms of the Domain. The silver stars represent the founded Realms, while the midnight-blue stars represent those Realms still unfounded.
       The Binary is again set at the heart of the Crux, representing the Imperium, and its guardianship of the Domain as a whole.
       The flags of the current founded Realms in the Domain are placed on the inner edge of the circle: starting with the flag of Fantasia I.D., and continuing with each successive Realm's flag staggered from left to right running down: Snowdonia(left), FairyStone(right), Sil Magra(left), the Black Hills(right), Pacifica(left), Snake Mound(right), the Dells(left), Lumina(right), the Dreamtime(left), Orinoco(right), ArkenStone(left), Plainitia(right), Aquaterra(left), LoneStar(right), Remal(left), Cascade(right), Astoria(left), Celtica(right), Belle Terres(left), Cibola(right), Western Divisia(left), and Saint Lawrence(right). As more realms are claimed, their flags will be added accordingly. This is to represent that we stand as one, though we are many.
       The whole is surrounded by a circle of gold, representing the light in which to see our way. Along the top curve are the words in Quenya Elvish:

       "Magick Mystery Legend"

       The words across the bottom curve read:

       "Because we believe..."
       (The former Great Seal - Derived from the center of the CrossField, minus the stars. Seven mystickal animals are superimposed over the cross: The Sphinx(mystery) on the top end, the Golem(resiliency) on the bottom end, the Gryphon(nobility) on the left end, and the Pegasus(freedom) on the right end. The remaining three: the Phoenix(perpetuality), the Dragon(strength), and the Unicorn(purity and light), are arranged in a triangle pattern at the center of the cross: with the Dragon on the left corner, the Unicorn on the right corner, and the Phoenix at the top. The DarkFyre Heart is superimposed over the crux of the cross, representing ShadowDarkFyre, and his guardianship of the Domain. The flags of the realms in the Domain are placed on the rectangle: starting in the corners, and beginning with Snowdonia, followed by FairyStone, Sil Magra, the Black Hills, and Pacifica. As more realms are claimed, their flags will be added accordingly. This is to represent that we stand as one, though we are many. A field of green surrounds the arrangement: representing the simple beauty of nature. The silver band wrapped around represents the magick of believing. The four corners of blue represent the sea, the sky, and the color of the mortal soul. The words across the top and bottom are written in Sindarin Elvish. The words at the top say: "Magick, Mystery, and Legend" The words across the bottom read: "Because we believe...")


The Lesser Seal of the Domain Reborn:
       Same as the description of the Great Seal, minus the flags of the Realms.
       Seven Binaries set at the seven points of the fairy star of the Crux, along the band of gold surrounding the whole.
       The national motto of the Domain - There's magick in believing - written in silver Quenya Elvish letters under the Crux at the bottom of the circle.
       The former Lesser Seal - Same as the description of the old Great Seal, up to the description of the arrangement of the flags. Two thin lines of forest green border the arrangement on either side, still representing the beauty of nature. A band of silver borders the entire image, representing magick in believing. Words written in Sindarin Elvish are placed in the upper left and lower right quadrants. In the upper left, it reads: "There's magick..." And in the lower right, it reads: "in believing..."




The Arms of the Domain Reborn -
       The center of the CrossField Reborn, minus the stars, centered on a field of midnight-blue, bordered with gold. The seven mystical animals - the Phoenix(perpetuality), the Dragon(strength), the Unicorn(purity and light), the Sphinx(mystery), the Gryphon(nobility), the Pegasus(freedom), and the Golem(resiliency) - set at the seven points of the Crux's fairy star.
       Behind the Crux and the animals stands a Great Sequoia tree: national tree of the Domain. Upon the tree's crown is a red rose, the Domain's national flower. To the left is a North Alaskan timber wolf, the Domain's national land animal. To the right is a peregrine falcon, the Domain's national bird. At the roots of the sequoia is the orca, the Domain's national sea animal.
       (The former Arms - Seven spheres on a field of dark blue, each with one of the seven mystick creatures: the Phoenix(perpetuality), the Dragon(strength), the Unicorn(purity and light), The Sphinx(mystery), the Gryphon(nobility), the Pegasus(freedom), and the Golem(resiliency). One sphere in the center derived from the center of the CrossField, minus the stars. A dark-blue star above the spheres, and a silver star below(representing the eternal balance between darkness and light): both bordered in dark-green(representing nature).



National battle standard: the Hammer and the Sword Reborn
       A warhammer and a sword crossed together in an "X" pattern, with the DoubleStar of the Imperium: representing the Imperial District of Fantasia, superimpised on the crux.
       Twenty-seven stars surround the hammer and sword. Three are in a triangle formation, representing the three founding Realms of the Domain: Snowdonia, FairyStone, and Sil Magra. Seven stars are midnight-blue, representing the seven Realms as yet unfounded.
       The grouping is set in a circle of black, which in turn is set within a rectangle of grey-black shadows, representing the Shadows and the Darkness: the mystery and unknowns of Reality.
       In a seven-pointed star formation are the seven mystick animals: the Phoenix(perpetuality), the Dragon(strength), the Unicorn(purity and light), the Sphinx(mystery), the Gryphon(nobility), the Pegasus(freedom), and the Golem(resiliency).
       The words written across the standard in silver Quenya Elvish lettering are those of the chorus from the Domani Battle Anthem, "Invincible"(by Pat Benatar). The top line reads, "We can't afford to be innocent". The middle line reads, "Stand up and face the enemy". The bottom line reads, "It's a do-or-die situation". The words in the black circle, amid the hammer and sword, read, "We will be invincible".
(The former Sword and Hammer - Similar to the Reborn Sword and Hammer, with the coloring and symbols changed.)








National Maritime Flag: The Stars on the Sea
Purpose: Naval Standard of the Domain
Description: A cluster of stars glowing on a blue field, representing stars reflecting on a nighttime sea: in reference to how mariners sometimes - and still do - find their way across the oceans by the stars in the sky. To be flown only when the Domain has business on or near the water.
