Coat of Arms
The color white symbolises the polar climate around the capital city. The color blue symbolises the Atlantic Ocean in which the Kingdom of Batu is located, as well as the localised and rare Blue Aurora Borealis which can be seen from the capital of the Kingdom of Batu, Nyøy-Batuland. The snowflake in the center symbolises appreciation for our snowy, polar climate.
Not much is known about the flag of the Kingdom of Batu, but is theorized that the colors blue and white represent similar values as in the Coat of Arms. The white star in the center of the flag could be Polaris, the North Star.
