The Blackwind Lancers’ colors were stricken after the second battalion’s disgrace on Hustaing. The Lancers paint their equipment tan and ivory with blue highlights (Also: “…At the outskirts of Qingliu he traded hasty shots with a Cataphract bearing the blue and yellow of the Lancers…”). Free Capella’s crest, now titled The Promise, shows a dragon coiled around the world of Indicass, where once it showed Sian. The insignia appears on the left breast of each ‘Mech, the left fuselage of a fighter and the left plastron of a vehicle. They currently use the Free Capella crest as their insignia.
Note: There’s confusing information about the insignia of the Blackwind Lancers. Therefore, both emblems are shown here.
