It is very nice.
I mean, is there anything like, larpy or odd about flying a BR flag at demos
No, I actively encourage it.
I can imagine some shitlord on twitter sperging about it but other than that nothing
The MD and TX guys already do.
BR / PF / BR / PF in a demo would look good af
So did that guy ever figure out it was a fascii or what
Trying to post the flag design we used.
and is that one too big
The one I sent to the printers.
Thats the only one I have that you sent me
That's what they'll look like.
did you order them from my guy
what it do
@ThatGoy Fasces is a bundle of rods surrounding an axe. Ancient symbol going back to the early beginnings of Rome. It means strength in unity, and became a prominent symbol in the Roman Empire, where Consuls would be in power while "holding fasces", and their body guards also carried them, as a symbol of the primacy of the State.
You can also see them in a wide variety of architecture throughout our civilization, and very much so in early America. Nearly all of the neoclassical elements of D.C. and elsewhere include them in some capacity.
Also, Mussolini used them a lot and he's pretty cool too.
So did Mosley. Cool as well.
Lictors carried them they were the body guards for the tribume of the plebs
I forgot the term, yes them.
Also they go as far back as the Etruscans
Yeah, the Romans didn't invent them. They just build a civilization that popularized them.
And America now sits as the cornerstone of the west, just as Rome did, in a similarly perilous state as Rome saw in its declining days. What better symbol to remind our people of than one which is as old as our civilization itself, and promotes the unity of a people and their united strength in an effort? @ThatGoy
Hope that clears it up for ya.
Pretty neat fam
It must have been visually striking to see a man guarded by 12 facies carrying men
All that weight behind an axhead would fucc things up bre
Velocity has more bearing on impact force then mass
Also roman battle masks are kickass
I actually like the fasces Betsy Ross flag tbh fam
I think they were more ceremonial, a deterrent. Normal weapons weren't technically allowed in the city iirc, but that rule was broken all the time.
