Flag of The Sohnland
Symbolism and meaning
Originally designed in 2013, the national flag still stands for The Sohnland today.
The national flag is a visual representation of the nation's three core principles and is a reference to the national motto and vice versa.
"Dark sky, Golden Dove, over a crimson sunset."
The black on the flag represents the dark sky. The shield represents the Golden Dove. The white cross represents diverging sun beams over the red part of the flag which represents the crimson and red sunset.
Dissecting the meaning of the three core principles
Dark sky as apart of the motto, symbolises human curiosity, knowledge and truth.
Golden Dove as apart of the motto, symbolises individuality, free will, and creativity.
Crimson sunset as apart of the motto, symbolises self actualisation, inner peace and hope.
