Colwyn's Flag from Krull 1983
The 1980s saw cosmic forces assault the imaginations of Earth. In the wake of galactic dreams to awaken, it was from the United Kingdom came the fantastic movie Krull 1983.
This movie took the fantasy genre to a new level of lore mixed with romantic notions of history. Of vexillological note the hero of the movie, Prince Colwyn, is seen carrying his banner. Although his culture is modeled from the Far Western style of camelot, the flag bears an Eastern samurai design. It has black, red, and white colours with a trailing long top pennant and smaller trailing streamers.
