A common banner of Talabecland.

The Grand Duchy of Talabecland[1a][2] is a central province of The Empire being the homeland of the ancient Taleutens[3][4]. Its symbol is a crowned red eagle and its colours are red and yellow[5c]. The current Elector Count of Talabecland is Helmut Feuerbach[5b][8c].

The province is named after the Talabec, a sacred river of Taal, god of Nature and Wild Places. His cult is the most popular and important one among Talabeclanders.

Heraldry

The two main colors in Talabecland are red and yellow. The banner of Talabecland has a crowned red eagle on a yellow background. This symbol is usually used to represent Myrmidia, but in Talabecland it represents the sharp eyes of Taal. Other common devices on banners are skulls, antlered heads, and trees. When Talabeclander regiments cross the River Talabec, they dip their banners in its waters, hoping to gain Taal's blessing.[5c][2]
