The flags display each knightly order’s heraldic animal. The flag of the Dragon order shows a mighty red dragon against a black background. The red represents the great power of dragonfire. The black represents the land of the Dragon Knights. The gleaming white griffin against a blue background represents the endless skies above the mountains, which are ruled over by the griffin. It is a great honour for the knights of either order to be able to display the flag before their brothers-in-arms and to bear it into battle. This honour is only accorded to the best and bravest of men.
