Families of Westeros: The Night's Watch

Sigil
The men of the Night's Watch are identified by their black cloaks. When the knights from Kings Landing came upon Yoren and his group Yoren waved a plain black flag to let them know they were men of the Night's Watch. This is their banner. They are also known as crows, particularly to the wildlings. So for the blog I chose a banner with a crow on it, just to jazz it up a bit! Otherwise it would just be a plain black square :P
Oath
Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.
(The line in bold is a line that was left out in the T.V series, this is the full Oath taken from the book)
