The State of Newlynn, which claims itself as the first permanent settlement in the Federal States of Archanta, is located in the Southeast Region of the country. The state lies along the Ardentic Ocean, and is bordered by Aperia, Oakhill, Natrinia, Wilthamshire, AR120-08, and the Capital District. Due to the state's location, Newlynn has benefited as a regional port and transportation center, with Port Robert as one of the oldest continuously operating harbors in the Federal States.

Port Robert and neighboring Rivertown, grew wealthy through trade and the exportation of corn, tobacco, and cotton. Rivertown's central location fueled the city's growth, eventually becoming the capital of the then-territory to the present day.

Flag

Flag v2.png

The flag of Newlynn was officially adopted upon the convening of the first official government of the state. The flag features a navy blue field with the silhouette of a heron, slightly off-center. The flag also features an ear of corn and a tobacco plant with four leaves.

The blue field represents the Ardentic Ocean, and the state's waterways.

The heron, shown in white; is the state bird of Newlynn. The bird represents independence, freedom, grace, and determination. The heron is shown mid-flight, representing the journey across the ocean, and a quest for the future, pointed toward an ear of corn and a tobacco plant.

Both the corn and tobacco plants represent the state's primary cash crops prior to industrialization, which helped fuel the young Newlynn economy and growth. The ear of corn represents a bountiful harvest and good health. The tobacco plant represents prosperity, with four leaves, one for each of the counties of Newlynn.
