Origins

The founder of Marland, Benjamin Felix, knew that to draw all Marlandic people together, there needed to be a single flag, a rallying call, which would unite a shattered people. Marland, intending to be a maritime nation, needed something with simplicity, and memorability. An idea was set up with a blue-white-blue triband, but this was rejected in favour of the later gold, although the white does still exist in some government capacity.

He blue stands for the sea and the sky, while the yellow for the sun, and all landmasses which exist in between.
