The Flag
When the United Kingdom was formed, its coat of arms combined the colors of Favonia (argent a cross sable) with the charge of Hesperia (gules an eagle displayed or) and added another head to the eagle to symbolize the duality of the realm. The eagle bore two crowns on its heads and an orb and scepter in its claws, which were removed from the country's arms and flag with the foundation of the Republic.

The Abachaean Flag

The Despotate of Abachaea, after annexation, was divided into the two provinces of Aximes and Xifteris. Its flag is still used as an unofficial symbol of regional and Hellenic identity, and has come to be popular throughout Hesperia. The Hesperian nationalist party favors it over the royal standard of Hesperia, which is identified with the Monarchist Party.
