The 'Broken Merchant Alliance Flag is a Broken Emissary Flag Treasure item in Sea of Thieves. Broken Emissary Flags are acquired from sunken Emissary Ships and are only valuable to the Reaper’s Bones Trading Company who are willing to pay handsomely for them. Broken Merchant Alliance Flags can appear in 6 variations, depending on the Grade of the sunken Ship. The higher the Grade, the better the Reward. A Player's own Ship's Flag is marked as Yours and will return negligible rewards. All the variations visually look the same, with their type being indicated in the pick-up prompt of the Item.

Where to Find[]

Broken Merchant Alliance Flags can be found floating to the surface after a ship representing the Merchant Alliance Trading Company 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.
