The Jolly Sigfried is the symbol of the Barbarian Freehold Alliance. For over 20 years we have flown war banners, personal banners at encampments, personal favors hanging from belts, leather belts, and even a coronet with the likeness of the Sigfried.

      The standard description is a black background with the Sigfried all in white. But for most other purposes we make the Sigfried in natural colors.

      Some History about the Sigfried.

1974/1975-- When the Freehold came into existence one of the things they wanted was a devise. Policy at the time forbade groups from having devises. The Freehold along with several Households from around the Known World actively worked at getting this changed.

1976-- By June the Freehold was able to register a devise. Keeping in mind that a Celtic style devise was wanted they started with a human skull. This was to symbolize manpower. With 12 members in the Freehold and Caid numbering 80-we represented 15% of the Principality. Manpower.
      The cattle horns were added to show that we were a wealthy household. The budget of the Freehold was 25% as large as the Principality.
      In adding the sword we showed that we also worked in the Arts and Sciences. the Freehold was producing at 1/3 the rest of the Principality.
      The smile was added to show that we understand that this is just a game and we won't take things seriously. For the rest of the year the Devise was called "The Devise".

1977--Due to a comedy routine on Television the name of Sigfreid or Siggy was used.

1978--The resemblance to the "Jolly Roger" was pointed out and the name of the "Jolly Sigfried" was Born.
