New Ordinance on Naval flags

By Mid July of 1713, our what-if Principality has adopted a new set of naval flags for official and war use, replacing those in use so far. The main difference from now on consists in the restoration of the traditional Saint George Cross as a jack, replacing the Spanish Empire's Burgundian Cross.

Stern Ensign and Mainmast Flag are to remain the same, though.

It has been said that new Parliament decrees are to follow shortly, regulating maritime flags for both Civilian and Corsair use.

Indeed the Defiant Principality needs a respectable Navy -to break the Two Crowns blockade, prevent any attempt of landing or bombing, maintain free communication with the Islands...

Maybe this new set of ensigns will be recognized as that of a major maritime power in Western Mediterranean, as far as Sardinia (this last -Arborea- already, or soon to be, part of the Galatean Principality?)...


Monte-Cristan perfect neutrality is universally acknowledged and appreciated, and anyway the Presipality is tiny to the point of military impotence. But we are always willing to help in any way any initiative favoring peace. Passively, by welcoming on our soil discret meetings; actively by activating our numerous contacts in all European Major Powers -not traditional diplomatic contacts, but all those Persons of Power and Influence with anonymous numbered accounts in the Presipapal Bank...

And, Monte-Cristan neutrality notwithstanding, it *happens* that our agents aboard, normally being only passive 'watchers', sometimes act 'on their own initiative' -with a rather elastic conception of 'the defense of the innocent'...

...if you need a blockade broken, a siege raised, village succumbed, population cleared, all you have to do is contact The EYE.....

....OIIIIIIIO

As you probably noticed by my latest post at EvE's blog, there's already a diplimatic legacy 'en route' to Monte Cristo...
