The Lauranian Eagle – Errata

The last two paragraphs of my blog entry of Sunday 6th September 2009 should read as follows:

This design remained unchanged until the 1848 Revolution, after which the crown was removed and replaced by a scroll with the letters PPL on it. This was the motto of the Republican movement and stands for Pro Populo Lauranio (For the People of Laurania).

This alludes to the scroll that formed part of every Roman Eagle. These carried the letters SPQR (standing for Senatus Populusque Romanus [‘The Senate and People of Rome’ or ‘The Senate and Roman People’]), and it is in keeping with their 'Roman' tradition that such a scroll be incorporated into the current design of the Lauranian Eagle.
