New Book of Mormon Coloring Page - The Title of Liberty

Captain Moroni's Title of Liberty Coloring Page Go to coloring page!

As a part of my recent work on a new mazes coloring book collection featuring stories from the Book of Mormon, I have been able to generate a handful of original coloring pages depicting key objects or events from the Book of Mormon. This coloring page is a depiction of Captain Moroni's Title of Liberty, or the flag that he created out of his rent coat. On it he wrote a simple declaration of liberty which Moroni used to inspire the hearts of his fellow countrymen to action at a time of great peril among the Nephite nation.

The text that is written on this flag is not of ancient origins but is a literal translation of Moroni's declaration from the Tamil language. I employed Google Translate to obtain a translation into Tamil, which is a local dialect spoken in parts of India. The decision to use the Tamil language was purely artistic, and there is no other reason for its use other than it didn't look Latin in origin.

More information will be forthcoming on the Book of Mormon mazes project, which I am tentatively calling "Passages from the Book of Mormon."
