While it is not required to be on a swallowtail, that was the intent.of the
first Star Principal Herald (Aureliane Rioghail) and the Crown under which
it was submitted (Lloyd and Joselyn)
Technically, an ensign is a flag. (The ensign of Great Britain is the
Union Jack.) In fact, the first draft was drawn as a flag -- a rectangle
wider than it is tall. After looking at it, they re-drew it as a
swallowtail for submission. They decided that the rectangular version
looked like a Bathmat of State.
