Sci fi/Fantasy image by

The King's Pledge is the standard of the royal house of the south kingdom, and serves as the national banner of the southern land of Detheria. Like many of the other human realms of Agriana, Detheria was once a land divided. After many years of war between the countless factions that made up the lands of Detheria, a King rose to power and united its people into a single nation. Upon his coronation as the first true King, he swore that he would serve the people as much as they served him, and that his blood line would forever be honour bound to this oath. This royal pledge to protect and serve is symbolised in the banner itself and, was so named. The shield denotes the kings place as first defender of the realm. The sword is the symbol of his willingness to fight on behalf of his people, and the chain represents the continued line of Kings who have upheld this duty and also the strength of the bond between the King and his people. Although the various dukedoms of Detheria have their own heraldry and devices, The King's Pledge, or The Pledge as it is more commonly known, is still flown first and foremost throughout the land. ((Although I drew this banner, all credit for it design goes to Leigh Cooper. Leigh created this as the overall device of the portion of Agriana he is currently developing. Rather than simply having good looking imagery as the banners of our respected nations, we decided each banner should hold some meaning which speaks of the history of the people who bear it.)) is the standard of the royal house of the south kingdom, and serves as the national banner of the southern land of Detheria.
