Alliance Golden Cross
In the Lore of Energy and Light® universe, the Alliance of Planets (Alliance) is a coalition of races who came together to combat the Valker threat. Long ago, the Alliance started as a group of “concerned planets”. Their past experience led them to believe that stopping the Valkers sooner rather than later was the best option. They were right. Reptilian conquest quickly spread across galaxies. More planets decided to join the “treaty of the many”; agreeing to fight under a common symbol, with common representation that governed policy (Counts).

The common symbol of the Alliance is a golden cross. It is an eight-pointed cross with the vertical axis and horizontal axis shorter than the diagonal ones. The Alliance Golden Cross has a solid sphere at its centre. The sphere is the generic symbol for a planet, and the eight arms of the cross represent each of the founding planets in the Alliance.
Forces fighting for the Alliance are often called “Warriors of the Cross”, or are referred to as fighting under “a cross of gold”. This is because their royal blue armour bears a large golden cross on the back. The Alliance Golden Cross is also branded on the hulls of spaceships, other crafts, and sometimes painted onto walls of buildings.
The Alliance Golden Cross is a powerful symbol of hope for citizens, and a standard to rally around on the field of battle. Its shining rays are a beacon of light holding the impending Valker conquest at bay.
