A new flag proposal presented to the citizens of Dracul in a poll, ended Wednesday showing a majority in favor of the new flag design, great seal, and national emblem.
66.7% of voters were in favor of the change, with a 33.3% wanting to maintain the current flag. The good news for those in favor of the current flag is that it won’t be going away. The Founder’s Committee voted in favor of keeping the flag as a historical flag, similar to that of the 13-star Betsy Ross flag of the United States.
Parliament is expected to officially adopt the flag at the next session, which most of Parliament has shown early support for it as well. It’s unclear however if there will be any debate about it.
The new flag was introduced by Chancellor and Founder Stephen Luke, as he felt the Welsh dragon was originally a poor choice in representing Vlad, as it was the incorrect dragon to do so. A type of dragon design called the Ouroboros was the actual dragon used in the Order of the Dragon.
Various other images, such as the crow with the Orthodox cross, as well as the spinning sun also stem from Wallachian historical images.
Once the flag is officially adopted, most of the flag production and sales will switch to the new flag, with the older design printed only on a made to order basis.
