Byzarbia’s colonial colours

Byzarbia is — for the time being at least — a ‘protectorate’ (a euphemism for ‘colony’) of Granprix. Whether it will remain so after the events of the coming weekend remains to be seen!

Anyway, for the time being, its flag contains elements of the Granprixian arms, over crossed scimitars on a field of green. The motto, in Arabic, reads الأسماك والحرية (and I hope you can see that in Arabic script) which means, I am assured by Google Translate, “Fish and Freedom”.

I’m posting this here so that any of the Byzarbian participants who wish to make use of this flag can do so.

    Inspirational -but, again, too bad it’s not ‘labelled’ as other relevant posts (I found it searching for ‘Byzarbia’).

      Thanks for the heads-up, Jean-Louis – I have now tagged the two posts as “Imagi-Nations” and will check others too.

    Henry, السماك و الحريه is fine for ‘Fish and Freedom’, but unfortunately the script has reversed on the actual flag (i.e. it has gone from left-to-right rather than right-to-left). It is right in your text entry.

    Hope that helps – it is a really good flag!

      “Impressed” doesn’t quite convey my feelings about that information! Amazing — and thank you. 😀
