Orb = ball

helmet - what stops yer head from being hurt.

They are worn by fancy clankies who can also attach flags to them, or have them as part of their helmet decor. they can be metal or wood etc.

Well it's a very pretty helmet orb, and if I was to have any helmet orb in the whole wide world, it would have to be that one.

Balls

Oh but there is, so much more

here it is mounted with pencel as per the 'Big Onion' Ordinances of 1471-3

The flag-ette is a masterpiece by the same Greg 23b.

A Borgogne!

Agrees with Marcus.

Jellly's flag is a temporary one made up for him recently, he will be receiving Flag 2.20 in due course, best save it for that.
