This is the flag of Serethnem. The bottom field of yellow represents the sands of the desert, and the upper blue portion represents the blue skies devoid of shade. The silver tree is an iaonen tree. Once, the desert of Serethnem was a silver forest of trees like those depicted on the flag, but when the Briar King disappeared, his sorcery drained out of Serethnem, and it returned to the desert it had once been. His silver briar trees, the iaonen trees, became twisted black patches of briars. The iaonen tree on the flag represents the lost glory of Serethnem and that the Sereth have not forgotten their past.
