Emblem of the Public Force of Sancratosia.

The main symbol of the Public Force is a silver bugle, an instrument that was historically used as a military signal device. It represents the readiness of the Public Force, its discipline and, by depicting an instrument and not a weapon, its peaceful character. The bugle is present on the coat of arms, the flag and the emblem. It is also featured on the Medal of the Public Force.
