Mia insulo!

Click to see the flags in more detail! Our Coast Guard cutter:

A fast, sturdy, highly maneuverable boat capable of operating in heavy seas, adequate accommodations for crew to live on board, best suited for the necessary Search and Rescue, Law Enforcement and Defense Operations.

Since April 301, Feniz has stationed a Search and Rescue helicopter on the island.
October 301 saw the first arrival of MS IMPUTAN, supplying us with Utanian goods since.
In April 302, the Sultan Protector visited our island and donated this fast yacht as a mail boat and state yacht. So I can use this comfortable yacht for visits to Ezo or the mainland, instead of the relatively spartanic Coast Guard cutter.

The yacht is operated by the Nacia Navigadokompanio de Fora Rifo (Fora Rifo National Shipping Co.) and flies their ensign; we do not have a state ensign.

Ezoan NACIA AERVOJO's hydroplanes used to link Fora Rifo to the neighbouring kingdom.

Below: Our airship "Orienta Nubo". The name means "Eastern Cloud"; it does look a bit like cloud when the airship slowly and majestically approaches Fora Rifo.
