The Flag of Calbion was adopted immediately following the establishment of the Calbain nation in 1596. It draws upon the symbolism of the Calbain people.

Symbolism and design

The flag features the ancient coat of arms of the Prince of the Calbain, thereby representing the Calbain people. The blue saltire symbolises the maritime history of Calbion, whilst the white refers to the former royal colour, and has retrospectively also been suggested to symbolise the Calbain Church. The flag of Calbion was updated in the year 1613 to remove the black lining to the saltire. In 1688, the Coat of Arms on the flag was slightly altered.

The flags of the seven talaith all feature the Calbain saltire, in various colours known as the dau liw, that represent the official colours of the talaith. The Ynys y Calbain holds blue and white as dau liw, reminiscing the historical origin of the Calbain people.

The distinctive blue colour of the saltire influenced the flag of Arcadia and subsequently those of Amokolia and Arbor.
