The flag of Gilneas

Story Forum
Is there a reason the flag for Gilneas has changed? What is it supposed to mean? Why does it looked airbrushed..?

Old Flag:

The answer is obvious:

We're no longer Kingdom #5. We're now Kingdom #3.

Double rainbow

One of Liam's aunts got him Photoshop for Winterveil one year, and Genn just can't say no to him.

Just be glad that Tess removed the blur and charcoal filters before it was sent to the printers.

I think you mean "now" but duh Its so obvious!

Meh, I went with the first pictures i found in google. I think the new one looks pretty bland(not saying the old one isn't either).

Honestly, I find the new flag to be an improvement. The other seems much more tribal, not very fitting for what Gilneas is being portrayed as currently.

How is the new one more anymore fitting then the old? What is the mark even supposed to be?

Well, theres Ferlion's theory that is supposed to be Gilneas City.

Alternatively, it should be noted to how similar the flag looks like a three pronged claw mark.
Or perhaps it doesn't mean anything.

And its more fitting because its somewhat more elegant. Gilneas is now a British like nation. I would say the old banner looks more barbaric. Keep in mind that the concept of Gilneas changed a lot since the old banner you put forth.
The new Gilnean flag looks to...Modern? idk the right word but it looks like it should belong to some big company here on Earth. lol.

Old flag looks like a mirrored version of the Rahabim clan symbol from the Legacy of Kain game series (Soul Reaver 1 & 2 to be precise):

Could be one of the reasons IMO
