Crown of Legiálle
Blending Western and Haitian iconography, the Crown of Legiálle features pearled arches. The pearls are a reference to the island of Sainte-Domingue, which was known historically as the Pearl of the Antilles. The phoenixes rising from flames symbolize rebirth a renewal, a nod to the Arms of Henry Christophe, later King Henry I of Haiti, who is a cognatic ancestor of Legiálle’s Royal Family. The orb with cross atop the crown symbolizes (Western) monarchical authority, while the supporting palm leaves referencing Haiti.
A cypher is a monogram-like image indicating the reigning prince or princess regnant, used on official and personal documents. It usually features the monarch’s name and title, and more than often surmounted by a crown. The current cypher interweaves the letters ‘M’ and ‘A’, with the Crown of Legiálle above.

Coat of Arms
The Coat of Arms is the "emblem" of the nation and the Royal Family. It shows three red stripes with crowns and three white stripes with blue escallops (seashells). The arms rest on an escallop, with a banner below which reads Vires Sapientiae Virtus or Strength, Wisdom, Valor (national motto). The Crown of Legiálle surmounts the shield.
The supporters are represented as Simbis, water spirits of folklore, crowned, each wielding a sword.
The State Flag features six shells, three of them blue against a wavy white background and the other three white against a blue background. (Heraldry Shells by madnoy74, Creative Commons.)
The Sovereign’s Flag is flown on any building, ship, car, or aircraft in which the Monarch is staying or traveling. It features a blue field with a white cross between four white shells with the Crown of Legiálle in the center. (Heraldry Shells by madnoy74, Creative Commons.)
Flag of the Maritime Islands
The Dominion of the Maritime Islands (Les iles maritimes) is a Realm of the Crown, made up of uninhabited islands in the Rochester, NY region of the Genesee River. Though a separate realm, all official business remains directed by the Legiállois government. The dominion’s flag features Legialle’s Great Coat of Arms against a red background.
