Noble Friends,

Coventry has selected its new flag, and it features the very medieval Lady
Godiva. It is actually quite tasteful, and a remarkable piece of heraldry
as well:

Lady Godiva is often portrayed as a something of a wanton woman in popular
culture, but she allegedly undertook her famous ride to shame her husband
into lowering oppressive taxes he had imposed upon his tenants:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Godiva . Whether this actually happened
is now questioned by historians, but it sure makes a great story, one that
will immortalized on Coventry's flag for generations.

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge  🦆
