New Land, New Heraldic Authority?

Postby Chris Green » 14 Jul 2014, 17:59

So there is, according to one American family at least, a new country in Africa, the "Kingdom of North Sudan". It even has a flag.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/va-man-plants-flag-claims-african-country-calling-it-kingdom-of-north-sudan/2014/07/12/abfbcef2-09fc-11e4-8a6a-19355c7e870a_story.html

Interestingly, though at 800 square miles considerably larger than Hutt River, no-one has yet come forward to claim to be the heraldic authority for the new "Kingdom". Shame really. The Heatons could have done with a bit of help with the flag.

But please do not address your applications here, but to Mr Jeremiah Heaton of Abingdon, Virginia. ;)

Considering it was designed by his children, the flag is not that bad.

Yes. For a child that is pretty good.

There are some official national flags which are much, much worse. :shock:

Given that the population of the "Kingdom of North Sudan" seems to be somewhere between 0 and 0.1, I think that an heraldic authority might not be necessary. :lol:
