A while back I read a novel called "Demon of Undoing," at first glance a sword-and-sorcery-type thing that is later revealed to be taking place on an alien planet called Imkaira, which is at a medieval stage of development. The "demon" of the title is a stranded human explorer. The alien society was described in considerable detail, including the symbols of its various feudal clans — the arms of several are given.

I wouldn't recommend the book — it read like a middling imitation of C.J.Cherryh, whom I don't like either. It was also the worst-proofread example of printed matter I have ever come across, on par with the average 6th-grade book report.

Clan Chalig

The flag of one of the clans, the Chalig, is mentioned in the book:

Above the tallest mast hung a bit of cloth. The wind whipped it out flat even as he stared, revealing a green field crossed by a yellow and white flower. 'It's Chalig, he said, resigned.

It is shown on the paperback's profoundly cheesy cover though the illustrator made the flower all-white.

There is also a "Red Banner of the Chalig," a quasi-religious item under which the clan is led to war, but no description is given.
