Battle Standard of Athel Loren

The Battle Standard of Athel Loren was the one used at the Battle of Creaking Yew. It was borne by Athryn the Strong who was on foot when he was surrounded and cut down by Skaven. Lothlann the Brave rode headlong into the foe and snatched the standard. Seeing the standard rise again the Wood Elves renewed the attack and won the day. The standard depicts the sacred Oak of Ages, the most ancient tree in Loren, the very heart of the forest. It is the custom for Elf maidens, sorrowing for fallen warriors, to sacrifice their tresses to be woven into the standard.[1a]
