Sir David produced rival National Flags. What quandary! All of Beerstein awaits a decision.

The regimental inhibitors are in a quandary, which nation flag will accompany our army on the field of glory? Will it take a national referendum, or will our allies help by showing their preference?

Sir David presents new a National Flag to the Reich Duchy of Beerstein

Sir David, purveyor of flags, standards, and ensigns for the Reich Duchy of Beerstein has designed a new national flag to be issued to each regiment in addition to the regimental flags he designed earlier. The regimental inhibitors were elated. What is your opinion?
