The Purple Pavilion, also called the Royal Pavilion, serves as the kingdom living room at foreign wars, and as a meeting area for the Crown.

There is now a tradition of hand-painting the canvas floor of the pavilion.

The mottoes on the floor express general values of Calontir and not, for example, Baronial mottoes:

  • A manu cornu Calontiris ad manum traditur. From hand to hand the Calon horn is passed.
  • Laborem aliis linquere honorem nullum habet. There is no honor in leaving work for others.
  • Hic historiae in fabulis et carminibus narrantur. Here tales are told in song and story.
  • In exedra Calontiris, valeatis. Be in good health in Calontir’s high hall.
  • Cum omnes heroi sunt, heroes non requiruntur. No need for heroes when all are heroic aka "No Heroes".
  • Comites, requiescite, nam tute ad domum veniebatis. Rest, Kinsmen, for you’ve come safe home.
