flag and coat-of-arms of Nassian Kingdom 1105-1523

Old royal Nassian coat-of-arms was a reaction on emerging heraldry in eastern and nothern Europe. Inspired by ancient legends and by already used white hart as a royal symbol, Nassian kings, regardless on their original house while being elected, used a simple coat-of-arms: a right sighted white hart on a step on blue field with green bottom. The shield is holded on a right side by whire hart. As a jewel, the simple steel helmet is used with blue and green cover, crowned with simple three-pointed golden crown and crest in a form of green field with three blue circles formed in a triagle with head down. This crown resembles the legendary king Sëëtasilu, who made his crown before the eyes of emisar of Swedish king Erik Eriksson. The emissar did not believe Sëëtasilu that he is a rightful king, since he had no royal crown. King took off his helmet and with one swift of his sword, he chopped of the top of the helmet, receiving a diadem, on which the metal worns resemble the points of crown. Royal banner is older and contains a right sighted white hart on step on green field with blue bottom strip.

Nassian Kingdom under protectorate of Sweden has used new symbols. The protectorate was expressed through the introduction of Scandinavian cross into both, flag and CoA. Also, Nassian king was granted by a new crown from king of Sweden. This crown respects Nassian traditions by means of hart antlers and colours of gems and cover. Anyway this crown substituted the old crown of king Sëëtasilu, thus was seen as a symnol for dismissed sovereignity.

One of the many acts of new SIC rulers in Nassland was exchange of symbols. According to template of SNOR symbols, SIC used head of white hart as a Slavonic national symbol on traditional Nassian flag. Same happend to the coat-of-arms. The main difference between other SNOR states symbols was absence of Christian cross.
