The Imperial Sunburst is the symbol of the Third Imperium. Does the Alsan Hierate have a symbol of sorts?

Any mention of what the stars represent? The four largest clans and the approx position of their homeworlds perhaps?

Not as far as I know. The four largest clans would not have the power to rise above the rest of the Aslan Tlaukhu, the (somewhat) ruling council of 29 clans (literally, Tlaukhu means "3 5", which in Aslan base eight system calculates to 29 in a decimal system). Also, all clans recognize only one true homeworld, Kusyu, especially those of the Tlaukhu, which sits on that world.

Unfortunately MegaTraveller, to my knowledge, never provided information on the heraldry of Aslan; even information on the heraldry of clans is sparse.

Thanks for the info!

Could perhaps be some star constellation that ancient Aslan looked upon each night and decided that it symbolizes unity, conquest or whatever’s most fitting.

Or major races? Aslan, Zhodani and imperium clustered together, and... hivers? Further to the right? Though why would the Aslan hierate want that for their flag?

Ignore me, just thinking out loud...
