The Banners(Flags) of Erebor and Rivendell? Can't Post

Don't have a Blu-Ray and pausing it again and Again...
Bomby still can't figure out what their designs are?
Are they in Chronicles' Books?

aka. fili orc-enshield

the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo

Erebor banner? [In reply to] Can't Post

Not sure if this is the banner you're talking about, but it looks like there is a bird on it.

I think it is probably the heraldic device of the House of Fingolfin... [In reply to] Can't Post

since Elrond is his direct descendant...

Welcome! and nice picture :) [In reply to] Can't Post

It could be a thrush or maybe an elderly raven?
