Broken Emissary Flags are Treasure items valuable to the Reaper's Bones in Sea of Thieves. They are acquired from sunken player ships that represented a Trading Company as Emissaries. Each of these Flags appears in 6 variations, which all look visually identical. The variations depend on the Emissary Grade and Ownership of the sunken Ship's Flag. The higher the Emissary Grade of the Ship, the more valuable the Flag is to the Reaper's Bones. Most Flags can only be sold to The Servant of the Flame at The Reaper’s Hideout or the Caged Skeleton at any Outpost for Gold and Reaper's Bones Reputation and Emissary Value, with the exception of the Reaper's Bones Emissary Flag, which can be sold to the Mysterious Stranger for Gold, Athena's Fortune Reputation, and Emissary Value. Crews only receive 1 Gold and no Reputation if they sell their own ship's Broken Emissary Flag. The variant of the Broken Flag can be determined from its Pick-Up Prompt.

Where to find

Broken Emissary Flags can be found floating to the surface after a ship representing either the Gold Hoarders, Merchant Alliance, Order of Souls, Reaper's Bones or Athena's Fortune as an Emissary has sunk. This is the only source for the Flags and as such, they require Resources or strategy to sink the ship and stop other players from taking the Flag. Player crews can also Scuttle their own Emissary Ship to receive their Flag, but selling your own flag will only reward the Crew with 1 Gold and a note from the Servant's displeasure with you.

Types of Broken Emissary Flags

The following is a list of all the Broken Emissary Flags:

With the exception of the Reaper's Bones Emissary Flag, they can only be sold to The Servant of the Flame at The Reaper's Hideout, as well as the Caged Skeleton at any Outpost, for Gold, Reaper's Bones Reputation, and Emissary Value. Reaper's Bones Emissary Flags can alternatively be turned into the Mysterious Stranger at every Outpost Tavern for Gold, Athena's Fortune Reputation, and Emissary Value. Remember you cannot put this flag back up!
