The Meanings Of The Symbols On The Houses Of Westeros Banners

May 25, 2018


Note: Graphic above is obviously not whole due to its lengthy nature (not unlike myself), keep going to see the whole thing.

This is an infographic created for UK flag retailer Feather Flags, featuring the meaning of the symbols on the nine Great Houses of Westeros's banner flags (excluding the exiled House Tully of Riverrun, which is a silver trout leaping on a striped field of blue and mud red and clearly means I'd rather be fishin'). Are they accurate? No clue, I know very little about Game Of Thrones on account of the fact my mother won't let me read the books or watch the show due to all the adult content. They should really make an edited version that kids can watch. "There'd be nothing left to see." Cool, so I'm all caught up now.

Keep going for the full graphic.


Thanks to David E, who made the graphic or at least had something to do with it, for reminding me I really need a friend willing to hold a sleepover and Game Of Thrones marathon for like six weekends in a row.

    I must be the only person in existence who has never watched this show.

  • James Mcelroy

    I've never even been on the internet.

    I decided to watch it after a breakup a couple years ago while looking for things to binge and drink wine with. Watched all 5 seasons at once - took like ...idk...two weeks? Now I've watched all of it sober and read the books. I didn't even think I'd like it but it's got a lot of nudity, sex and violence and interesting broken characters which I'm into.

    I watched it because I was dating a weirdo who was way into it. It wasn't good. I can't picture for a moment why anyone would like it. But I also don't like Harry Potter or pretty much any "medieval fantasy" genre shit.

    Mainly because Hollywood sword fights are almost always "attack the opponent's weapon" which doesn't work in any form of reality.

    I'd imagine the fact I didn't watch from the beginning didn't help matters.

  • Ollie Williams

    You should give Harry Potter a chance. They don't use swords, just their penises and buttsex.

    Come to think of it, I may have watched the wrong Harry Potter movies.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I think the on you watched was called Hairy Pooter which I think I've seen.

  • Ollie Williams

    Yep. You're right. I just looked at the blu-ray version that I definitely don't have that is definitely not scratched to shit from repeated playing.

    Hell no. People that watch it are in the minority.

    "The “Game of Thrones” season finale Sunday night smashed a series record for ratings, attracting 12.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen.
    HBO said on Monday that when views on HBO Go and its stand-alone HBO Now app were included, the 79-minute episode had 16.5 million viewers." -

    US population is 325.7 million, 16.5 million is 5.1% of the population if I mathed it right.

  • Ivanna Pewpalott

    you and me both, brother!

  • Bling Nye

    House Greyjoy's is a uterus. "We do not sow" ... because the penis do. So... apt, I guess?

    Also ironic for Theon. :/

    "not unlike myself" > I don't believe you.

  • Geekologie

    huge mistake
