Imperial Standard
Created by: Hantei
First used by: Unknown
Currently in the possession of: Unknown

The Imperial Standard was said it was created by Hantei himself and it held a small portion of the essence of the Kami. [1]

Appearance Edit

This nemuranai was shaped in the form of a rectangular flag. The standard was made of the purest white silk and could never be soiled by normal means, so it was always clean and vibrant. The Chrysanthemum flower of the Imperial Families was woven upon it in golden threads. [1] It was used as flag for the Imperial Barge, [2] and it was always the largest banner present at the Imperial Winter Court, hung directly behind the Emperor's dais. [3]

Abilities Edit

The J'uma Jirushi remained one of the most cherished possessions of the Imperial Court, for not only was the Imperial Standard imbued with potent magic enough to boost the moral of those who served the Emperor directly, but it was also a distinctive symbol of the Emperors of Rokugan. [1]
