Heraldry

The banner of Middenland is red and displays a castle, representing Middenheim, and a white wolf's head. Most soldiers wear blue and white.[2][5d][6a] Colored ribbons are worn by Middenlanders to differentiate between regiments.[5a] Some also carry wolf's tooth amulets to battle.[2] Wearing a wolf pelt to battle is a distinguishing mark- they can only be worn by those who have slain a wolf.[10]
