Article XII – Newfredland national identity
By order of the king, Lord Frederick William Cook, in accordance with the micronation of
Newfredland, we hereby establish official representations of our nation. Every nation
throughout the world holds specific representations, such as national bird, food, past
time, and such. We hold our representations as sacred to our nation, they are held in
the same esteem as the very crown itself.
The Newfredland flag
The national flag is comprised of three colors, white, black, and red. Equal white and
black represents equality amongst all peoples, even those diametrically opposed to one
another. Red represents the blood of those who have come before us and died in
search of true liberty and equality.
The laurel wreath represents the victory of the just, over tyranny and oppression, and
the victory of the mind, over force and violence. The serpent represents wisdom,
change, and growth, as well as one’s ability to defend itself if it is threatened.
“LIBERTATIS ET AEQUALITATIS” is Latin for “Freedom and equality,” which is the
official motto of Newfredland. The official seal holds the same laurel wreath and serpent as our flag and holds the same representations thereof. The crossed arrows pointing downward, represent peace and defense against those who would mean to cause us
All official documents will bear the official seal of Newfredland, or it is to be considered unofficial.
Newfredland official currency, colors, and motto
Our currency is called the nummus and the symbol representing the nummus is փ. White, black, and red, are our official colors, and as stated our motto is, “LIBERTATIS ET AEQUALITATIS” which is Latin for “Freedom and equality.” Freedom and equality are the literal bedrocks upon which Newfredland was founded
Our national pastime is reading
Reading is something that nearly all of our citizens love to do; whether fiction, non-fiction, historical, there’s something for everyone. Reading takes us places we
never could have gone, transforms us, teaches us new things, and enlightens us.
Nothing works the brain, imagination, or creative juices quite like a good book!
Reading is entertaining, educational, and a great way to find new things you like!
The Newfredland national sport is Karate
Lord Cook loves combat arts, boxing, wrestling, karate, kung fu, kickboxing, Judo,
etcetera, and is even the recognized founder of Cook’s Kenpo Karate, so it shouldn’t
shock anyone that the national sport of Newfredland is Karate. Although we plan on
having national sports teams in many combat sports, Karate is our flagship. Point
fighting, full contact, kata, weapons, team kata, all are welcome in the Newfredland
The Newfredland national music is Rock n’ Roll
Rock, classic rock, hard rock, alternative rock, metal, and all points in-between can be found within Newfredland. Other genres are always welcome too, but Rock n’ Roll has been deemed the official music of our revolutionary nation. Rock encompasses a lot of sub-genres of music, all of which are included herein.
The Newfredland national flower is the sunflower
Bright yellow, beautiful, large, useful in herbalism and healing, and nearly joy-inducing at the sight, the sunflower is our national flower for these reasons. Sunflowers also have an unmistakable scent, which has seen high-end perfumes made from it.
