I thought not. It’s not a story the Byzantines would tell you. It’s a romantic legend.

I need to keep note of the fact that apparently blue and yellow is NS' favorite color combo. :p

Incredible!
Thanks to Cosmic for taking the time for this competition and bringing us all together in this fun, amazing endeavour <3
I'm surprised I won since I went up against some amazing flags, especially in the final rounds. Thanks for all the good times and this is a win I will tell my kids about. :hug:

Oh, finally, congrats to everybody else who took part. It wouldn't have been anywhere near as intense without y'all's excellent submissions too
