Maunus Sataielkanpoika, Award of the Scarlet Banner

Guardian of the lists
Friend of fighters old and new
Maunus serves faithfully
As Baronial Marshal and at local practices

He is first to step up as marshal in charge
And ever ready to give a new fighter a hand
Once a member of the unbelted team
Now a squire to Sir Menken
Maunus continually proves his skill on the field

For his many martial accomplishments
We, King Quilliam and Queen Dagmar
Give unto Lord Maunus Sataielkanpoika
The Award of the Scarlet Banner

He has the right to bear the badge
Argent, a pale wavy gules
Between two wolves combattant sable
Bear it ever with pride
And defend it with honour

Done this 24th day of April
Anno Societatis 44
At Coronation in our Canton of Caldrithig

Wording, calligraphy and illumination by THL Asa Gormsdottir

Motif based on late 10th C. golden harness bow with Jellinge-style decoration (Mammen, Jutland, Denmark)

Runes in Elder Futhark
