Gallery of Flags and Coat of Arms released by the House of Norfolk

(26/6/19)

The House of Norfolk, which currently is the ruling house of the Norfolk Empire, released the flags and coat of arms of multiple subdivisions. The flags and coat of arms that were released were for the Duchy of Dellfolk, the Duchy of Bitty Ridge, the District of New Tenochtitlan, and the City of New Tenochtitlan, which did not receive a coat of arms by the House of Norfolk. The flags and coats of arms where made by HRH Prince Cooper Norfolk I but then approved by the Monarch of the Norfolk Empire, HIM Emperor Jason Norfolk I. HIM Emperor Jason Norfolk I is not the head of the House of Norfolk, that positions goes to HRM Duchess Dorothy McKinley I of the Duchy of Dellfolk, but is considered to be on of the most important. All of the flags and coats of arms that were created today are considered to be in the public domain, even though the Norfolk Empire has no copyright laws currently. All images that are shown below are technically free of use, but we still prefer to cite them appropriately.

The Duchy of Dellfolk’s Flag has a red background, resembling the favourite colour of HRM Duke Roger Bluetoski I of the Duchy of Dellfolk. In the center of the flag is a shaded golden-outlined diamond that is hollow on the inside except for a drawing of a pineapple. The represents the pineapple industry in the Duchy and how important of a role it will have on its future. The coat of arms of the Duchy of Dellfolk is a red shield with a golden outline surrounded by a laurel vert tied together in base by a ribbon. Inside of the main shield is a drawing of two hands loosely holding a pineapple, again, to represent the pineapple industry in the Duchy.Flag of the Duchy of Dellfolk (Norfolk I, HRH Prince Cooper. “File:Flag_of_the_Duchy_of_Dellfolk.Jpeg.” House of Norfolk, 26 June 2019.)Coat of Arms of the Duchy of Dellfolk (Norfolk I, HRH Prince Cooper. “File:Coat_of_Arms_of_the_Duchy_of_Dellfolk.Png.” House of Norfolk, 26 June 2019.)

The Flag of the Duchy of Bitty Ridge is a somewhat light blue and red bicolour stripes with the flag of the Norfolk Empire in the top left corner of the flag. Inbetween the flag of the Norfolk Empire and the right side of the flag is a large pink chicken. The large pink chicken is their to symbolise the hens that HRM Duke Robert Norfolk I and HRM Duchess Dorothy Norfolk I of the Duchy of Bitty Ridge used to own on another property they named Bitty Ridge, which is where the name of the Duchy comes from. It is pink because it is one of HRM Duchess Dorothy Norfolk I‘s colours. The coat of arms of the Duchy of Bitty Ridge is a dark blue shiel below a crown, to represent the Royalty, surrounded by a green and white olive branch vert. In the middle of the blue shield in a dark purple chicken, which, again, represents the hens that HRM Duke Robert Norfolk I and HRM Duchess Dorothy Norfolk I of the Duchy of Bitty Ridge used to own on another property they named Bitty Ridge.Flag of the Duchy of Bitty Ridge (Norfolk I, HRH Prince Cooper. “File:Flag_of_the_Duchy_of_Bitty_Ridge.jpeg.” House of Norfolk, 26 June 2019.)

The flag of the District of New Tenochtitlan has an orange background with a circle of fifty small grey stars. The amount and colour of the stars is irrelevant to the flag design, but the orange background represents the Aztecs, as the District is named after the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan. Almost every aspect of the flag is related to Aztec culture because the Norfolk Empire is considered to be the successor of the Aztec Empire by its inhabitants and some external obervers. In the center of the grey star circle is a golden eagle that is sitting on a cactus eating a rattle snake, which is a symbol of the Aztec Empire. When the Aztecs were attempting to find the holy land, one of their gods Huitzilopochtli told the Aztecs to look out for a golden eagle that was sitting on a cactus eating a rattle snake, according to the Ramírez Codex. They found that golden eagle on Lake Texcoco, now in modern day Mexico City, and settled Tenochtitlan on an island in that lake. The golden eagle is on the flag of the District of New Tenochtitlan to show recognition of the Aztec Empire and because the district is named after Tenochtitlan. The coat of arms is a heraldic eagle with a red beak, tongue, claws, and talons with black and white feathers. In the middle of the heraldic eagle is shield that has a white inside with the Aztec glyph of Tenochtitlan inside. The eagle and the Aztec glyph of Tenochtitlan are on the coat of arms for the same reason they are on the flag.Flag of New Tenochtitlan (Norfolk I, HRH Prince Cooper. File:Flag_of_the_District_of_New_Tenochtitlan.jpeg.

The final flag made was for the City of New Tenochtitlan, the District of New Tenochtitlan. The flag of the city of New Tenochtitlan has a picture of the flag of the District of New Tenochtitlan in the top left corner of the flag. It covers parts of one stripe and about one-fourth of the middle stripe. The flag is a tricolour flag with the top stripe being purple, representing one of the colour of the Flag of the Republic of Tamcoop, which is the micronation that currently claims the District of New Tenochtitlan. The middle stripe and the bottom stripe, which are gold and a mix of dark red and purple, represent the Aztec Empire, as they are colours of the Empire.
