In "Kaze no Tani no Naushika" (Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind), the movie and the manga by Hayao Miyazaki (I've only seen the film), a universe heavily influenced by Franck Herbert's "Dune", the world is in a post-apocaliptical state. Most of the Earth is uninhabitable because it is occupied by poisonous fungi and various forms of huge insects. The inhabitable world is divided in three main groups, the techonological and militaristic Torumekian Empire, the religious Dorok Empire (plays no direct action in the movie), and the petty kingdoms of the Periphery, of which we learn about two in the movie, the Valley of The Wind and Pejite. Nausicaš is the princess of the Valley of the Wind at the time the Torumekian Empire invades it. She then allies herself with prince Asbel of Pejite in trying to stop the destruction of the valley and of the insect/fungi world, because she discovers it is actually cleaning the land.

Torumekian Empire

[torumekian flag]
by João Madureira

The Torumekian Empire flag is briefly but clearly visible: with proportions about 2:3 or 3:5, on a black field, two red snakes each looking to one side, with their tales intertwined at the bottom, and a vertical golden sword on top of them. This symbol (snakes and sword) occupy almost the complete totality of the flag.

Forget about intertwined snakes, it's actually a snake with two heads on each end, the body of which does a pretty loop in the middle. The snake has a number of black stripes near its heads, the exact number of which I couldn't figure out. It seems not no have any teeth, so I didn't draw any. The sword has more details in the movie to make it look golden and shiny, but I think this is a good heraldic approach to that. The file is sent attached as fic-trmk.gif. BTW, "Torumekia", can be an informal short name for the Torumekian Empire.

Looks like a viking thing, doesn't it ?
