The teacher (who else would do such a thing?) wrote this anthem for our island:

Where Polaris breakers dash against the strand,
Where the yellow broom blooms on a sparing land,
|: Where the gulls are shrieking shrill in wind and storm,
There you find my island, there I am at home. :|

Our own diplomatic seals:

A Honorary Consul General is only appointed to the Kingdom of Elafites and Zufites (Ezo) to honour the special relations we maintain with that state.
