Welcome to Arcadia, The Land of Riches!
This will be a shorter entry, because I am VERY busy this weekend. Please enjoy!
History (Please Read To Understand Flags)
To understand these flags more you must know the history of the Arcadian nations. At one time Pratt was one big nation and Smelt did not exist. The northern territories of Pratt (Now Smelt) didn't feel like they were represented enough in the far away capital of Blue. People began demonstrating for more representation, but the petitions went unanswered.
After a decade of bad feelings bettween Northern and Southern Pratt, oil was discovered in the North. The resisdents knew that this was a great find, but the congress had passed a strict ban on any drilling in Arcadia. The resisdents once again petitioned, but this time they petitioned to change the law.
Another year passed before they heard back, this time they were not just denied, however. They were also forced to give the land to Blue, so that the capital could make sure that no drilling occured.
A naval fleet was sent to the Nothern Territories to keep watch on the residents which outraged them. They decided to succeede from Pratt and start a new nation of Smelt (Named after the most common fish in the area)
A long war with mass casulties commenced, but in the end Pratt won. Pratt, however, did not want the war stricken nation anymore so they decided to give the land to the resisdents anyway, but under some conditions
1. 25% of all oil that is drilled is to go to Pratt free of charge
2. The Pratt flag must be pressent on the new Smelt Flag
3. Smelt is not to assist an enemy to Pratt in any War
4. A 10% Tax will be imposed on any goods being shipped to Pratt from Smelt
There will be more history in future entries... Now for the flags!
Democratic Republic of Pratt (Pratt)
Blue for the beautiful ocean that surrounds Pratt
Yellow for the fields of ripe wheat that polka-dot Pratt
Green for the green forests of southern Pratt
The Liger (National Animal that Resides in Southern Pratt) symbolizes Strenghth and Pride, while the Unicorn (An exinct Animal that once was found where the big city of Gainveville) symbolizes the majestic beauty of the land
Constitutional State of Smelt (Smelt)
The Black symbolizes the oil off the coast, which started the Great Oil War and later seperation of Smelt from the mother country of Pratt.
The Red symbolizes the blood that was shed in the Great Oil War, that citizens of Smelt will never forget
The Pratt flag is at the top left because in order to split apart into two nations Smelt was required to keep the Pratt flag somewhere on their own flag
The Black cube represents the loss of life in the war, and he whole in every citizens heart from it.
Next Week I'm going to attempt at building a ski resort! Once again Thank-you for Reading and Comments are Appreciated!
