The Black Serpent was an emblem of the Haradrim during the War of the Ring. It was seen on banners upon a scarlet background.

HistoryEdit

The symbol is mentioned only once in The Lord of the Rings. On Théoden's arrival at the Pelennor Fields with his vast army of horsemen, a Haradrim chieftain bearing a banner with this emblem beheld him, and prepared with his own warriors to stand against Théoden's charge. He and his Haradrim were clove through, however, "like a fire bolt in the forest" by the Rohirrim, and other Haradrim fled.[1][2]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

In The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game, the name of the chieftain bearing this banner was Suladân.
