The Sacrivexillum (Sacred Standard) of my family since the 17th century!

Regarding the Sacrivexillum (sacred standard), one of the primary symbols of the Princely House of Lorenzburg:
 
First adopted by H.S.H. Prince Haraldus II of Lorenzburg (1590 – 1662), The Sacrivexillum has since been the personal standard of the reigning Prince of Lorenzburg. It is a white standard trimmed in gold and it depicts a vessel of anointing oil, crowned and resting on a cloud. From the vessel flows drops of fire or blood.
 
The standard bears the text in Latin from Isaiah 35:1: “Laetabitur deserta et invia et exultabit solitudo et florebit quasi lilium (“The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus”)
 
The symbolism of this standard is referencing the Prince as source and fount of the majesty of Lorenzburg. From him flows the mysterious anointing, as droplets of spirit, which animates the land. But the Prince and the Land are one, and their existence are mutually dependable upon each other and so the mystical anointing must flow in both directions in a bi-latteral relationship.
