Fun Lutetium Flag - Element 71 Lutetia-Paris Elemental

Since Lutetium is the Maiden Name of Paris, we have the fun Paris-Lutetia Flag for Element 71.  "Why they didn't just call it Paris-ium?"... is a mystery.  Lutetium gets its namesake from Paris's old Roman name - Lutetia.

City Flag of Paris, France with Coat of Arms - Lutetia
The flag of Paris is blue and red, minus the white.  A modified coat of arms based upon the city coat of arms for Paris is used.  Instead of a sailing ship we have the symbol for Alchemy.  This symbol is the basis of Philosopher's Stone, which was recently popularized by the Harry Potter books.  It deals with the old mathematical impossibility of squaring a circle.  After deep contemplation one can get a some insight to the nature of the Philosopher's Stone.  Perhaps it is better to call it Philosopher's Mineral or Philosophite?  Anyways a properly grounded Philosopher's Stone is said to be a red or white powder that can turn certain metals into silver or gold.   Apparently "Philosophite" has proton-neutron resequencing nucelar capabilites?  Perhaps this Philosopher's material is related to Extra-Solar Alien tech, left overtime travelers tools, a metaphor for the mind, or just plain dreamy nonsense.

But for our dandy flag, instead of a yellow fleur-de-lis we have yellow atoms.  Likewise the medals have been replaced with the Three Primes of Alchemy according to Paracelsus.  On the left blue side is a symbol for sulfur, which represents the soul.  On the right red side is the symbol of mercury, which represents the spirit.  And in the middle is the symbol for salt, which represents the basis of matter and the body. 

Definitely weird stuff here.  Funny thing is element 71, Parisinonite, baffles scientists.  Some want to classify it on the f block, some on d block.  It's always good to see an element that just won't be logically labeled.  As this Universe is composed of illogical elements, which in of itself is so very logical.
