This talisman takes the form of a banner mounted on a standing pole. There are two types.
House flags display the crest of one of the eight houses on a background colour associated with that house. They may be whole or ruined, ruined flags in the Courtyard of Awakening indicating a house which is currently closed.
Instead of the square house flag, a bare triangular flag may be mounted on the pole. These are typically used as markers and/or for RP purposes.
