The Isles of Pagues pagan name: Tribanneth (abbreviated as IoP) also referred to as Paguester is an archipelago in the Isles of Pagues Nature & Bird Reserve in the Blackwater Estuary, United Kingdom, consisting of Hexonhead Island, Hithersea Island, Great Albert Island, Attenborough Island, Ealew Island and Littlesea Island. Many oystercatchers settle and breed there in the Summer. It was founded by "Fedora Firewood" on 12th September 2017, after he decided that the birds deserved to have names for their islands due to their constant travels there. He called them the 'Isles of Pagues' (Isles of Pagans) because the vast majority of his ideas were derived from Paganism.

Variant flag of the Isles of Pagues.

Population

There have been no records of humans residing on the islands, which keeps it private to the birds. A reason for this is because the islands are too small. Another reason is that the islands have water flowing through it, which occasionally splits parts of it off, so in order to build any infrastructure there, the islands would have to be extended.

Divisions

The Isles of Pagues were founded so different packs of birds could have their own individual islands, at first, Firewood was hesitant to do this, because he thought it was dividing the birds from eachother, but he then realised that they had naturally done it anyway.

Koko's Point

A monument called Koko's Point, was erected on 29th September 2017, to commemorate a gorilla called Koko, who is known for her close proximity with humans. She is able to communicate with humans by using a form of American sign language. Firewood thought this was special, and was very touched when he heard her views on humanity. The monument is on Attenborough Island, in the Awen Islands.

Another similarly shaped point in the Awen Islands, called Rockerby, is also a monument. It commemorates armistice day and is part of Great Albert Island.

The Great Flag Rush

The 11th to the 19th October is known as the "Great Flag Rush". This period began after Fedora Firewood wanted to change the flag simply because of it's basic nature, so he designed multiple contenders, which all featured the coat of arms on them. White, Blue, Green and Black were used. The first flag, known as the "Haven Banner", was the flag of the Isles of Pagues for the first week of the period. Firewood then deemed this flag too complicated, contrary to his original reason for changing the flag of the IoP. Then, another one was submitted, which was the first flag in the history of the archipelago to feature black. This design did not last long, it was only official flag for 16 hours. Then, finally, he decided to 'revamp' this design, and came out with the third, and final flag in the trilogy, thus ending the Great Flag Rush.
