Announcer: The flags, shields, and banners of kings were symbols of the monarchy. Fleur-de-lis, lions, trees, and castles symbolized purity, courage, and strength.

Our banner has three colors and stars as symbols.
Our colors show red for bravery, white for purity, and blue for loyalty.
The stripes stand for the original thirteen colonies and the stars stand for all the states.

Knights and friends of the kingdom, please join in the Pledge of Allegiance.
