NOTE: Feel free to use some creativity. Surprise me, as you may be thinking something I am not. To facilitate this, here are some details from the book.
The Band of Fire consists of 4 patrols with patrol flags:
Sphinx Patrol: The patrol flag was in the same colors (burnt orange and black) with a picture of a Sphinx, including the head of a human, haunches of a lion and great fire red wings of a phoenix. The picture showed the Sphinx with wings outstretched, mouth open breathing fire and the lion paws standing on a sword crossing a bow and arrow, all embossed on a large shield. (James is a member of this patrol with Bekah, his best friend)
Centaur Patrol: This patrol flag (red, white and black) was with a picture of a Centaur, including the torso, head and arms of a human and the body of a horse. The picture showed the Centaur galloping with fire rising from the hoofs, a head with a golden crown, a breast plate covering the chest and a bow and arrow in hand, all embossed on a large shield.
Griffin Patrol: The patrol flag (royal purple and gold) was likewise on the wall with a picture of a Griffin, including the body, tail and back legs of a lion, head and wings of a great eagle and eagle talons on the front feet. The picture showed the Griffin raised up on the hind legs standing on two crossed swords, wings spread wide with lightning bolts in each front talon, all embossed on a large shield.
Minotaur Patrol: arrayed in navy blue and silver under a patrol flag with a picture of a Minotaur, including the head, tail and feet of a bull, body, and hands of a human. The picture showed a powerful Minotaur holding a double-sided battle axe, large metal wrist bands and anklets, and standing on a mound of broken weapons and shields, also embossed on a large shield.
Band of Fire Uniforms: Brown military style uniform with multi-colored patches over left breast pocket.
