Atreides (book)

[Atreides's banner]
by Jorge Candeias

The "Prelude" serie (prequels written by Frank Herbert's son) describe the Atreides banner (if memory serves me right) as Green and black with a red hawk.

I'm half way through Frank Herbert's SF novel "Dune", and I guess it's a good opportunity to report the frequent note by the end of the first third of the book about the "Atreides green and black banner".

For those who never read the book, it's a space opera where a feudal "house", the House of Atreides, is exiled to a dry, sandy planet called "Arrakis", or "Dune", formerly a (very profitable due to a certain "spice") fief of a rival "house", the House of Harkonnen.

Whenever I see someone talking about a "green and black banner", I cant help but to think this banner is a simple bicolour. And, since Herbert was american, the natural for him was undoubtedly making it horizontal.
