As a polyglot metropolis, Salt in Wounds is awash with color, symbols, and imagery imported from dozens of ethnicities and cultures. However, certain motifs carry over into the sigils, seals, and other identifying marks of the aristocratic houses, merchant guilds, and those belonging to high profile individuals.
Of course, imagery featuring the Tarrasque (usually heavily
stylized) reigns supreme, and such designs often place special emphasis on the
creature’s jaws. Icons of the Tarrasque are usually shown pierced by a harpoon (the
placement of which suggestive of Meridian house loyalty or kinship) or wrapped
in chain. Images of Axebeaks, ghouls, alchemical glassware, and the oversized
swords of God-Butchers are also utilized regularly. The official colors of Salt
in Wounds are dark red (for blood), parchment tan (for flesh), and blue-purple
(for the notion that every man is a ‘king’ in independent Salt in Wounds.
The official flag of Salt in Wounds is the bowing head of
the Tarrasque bleeding from the contact points where a crown of thirteen harpoons pierce it over a
blue-bordered white background. The official motto of Salt in Wounds is ‘Bind
the Savage, Honor the Deal, Feed the People.’
