United Nations of Vexillum
Committee on Collapsed Nations.
Mission to Merité.
"Operation Tranquil Transition."
Operation Tranquil Transition was launched on 26 December, 298, with forces
from 7 nations uniting to maintain peace and stability throughout the nation
formerly known as Merité, and its colonial possession, New Merité.
Troops and administrative staff came from Bowdani, Ferratus Directorate,
Free Confederacy of Lendian Republics, Republic of Ordland, Westria, The
Federal Republic of Whitlam, and the Kingdom of Eastern Zartania. This
multi-national force was rapidly deployed, and we now seek to bring about
a peaceful transition of power into the hands of the inhabitants of both
Merité, and New Merité. Each nation has been allocated a
zone, or sector, to control in either Merité, or New Merité,
and they will remain until the transition of power is complete, with some
nations facing the possiblilty of leaving before others from their administrative
capacity. The maps of the Sectors are located below, with Merité
on the left, and New Merité on the right.
Troop Deployment will be as follows.
Bowdanian Sector - Bowdani, FCLR, Zartania.
FCLR Sector - FCLR, Bowdani, Whitlam.
Whitlamite Sector - Whitlam, FCLR, Zartania.
Zartanian Sector - Zartania, Whitlam, Bowdani.
Whitlamite Sector - Whitlam, Westria, Ordland.
Westrian Sector - Westria, Whitlam, Ferrata
Ferratu Sector - Ferrata, Westria, Ordland.
Ordlandic Sector - Ordland, Ferrata, Whitlam.
In accordance with UNVCOCN Regulations,
flags for use on Merité, and New Merité are shown below,
with explainations, and conditions of use.
UNV "Operation Tranquil Transition" flag,
for use on Merité ONLY.
With the Meritéan flag in the Canton, and a stylised version of
the Meritéan coast, turned 45 Degrees, made up of stars containing
the colours of the 7 participating nations, (in order: Bowdani, Ferrata,
FCLR, Ordland, Westria, Whitlam, Eastern Zartania), on a white field symbolising
the peaceful objective, this flag is not to be used in New Merité,
due to the colonial overtones of the Meritéan flag. All local presses
in Merité have been notified of the flag, and the knowlege that
it is a UNVCOCN flag is widespread.
UNV "Operation Tranquil Transition" Flag
for use on New Merité.
Quite similar to the above flag, this one contains the UNV Flag in the
Canton, instead of the Meritéan one. Its dimensions are also changed
to suit the dimensions of the 2:3 UNV flag more suitably. The public of
New Merité are also familiar with the flag, with less accessable
areas recieving leaflet drops and radio transmissions.
More details on "Operation Tranquil Transition" will follow as the committee
completes its work. Talks have already begun with some major groups in
New Merité over the future of the land.
