Flag of Phoenicia Phoenicia is a formable nation in the Near East for countries of Phoenician culture, representing a unification of the mercantile cities of the region that can be formed by one of the autonomous Phoenician city-states in the area such as Flag of Arados Arados, Flag of Sidon Sidon, or Flag of Byblos Byblos. Forming Phoenicia requires conquering all of the main cities of the region and will likely involve challenging the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom that has the whole area firmly under its the control at the start of the game, in addition to declaring independence from that kingdom in the first place. While not a territorially extensive formable, forming Phoenicia will give unique bonuses to trade and Local ship recruit speed.png ship recruit speed, reflecting the mercantile heritage of the Phoenicians who traded and settled across the Mediterranean and beyond.

Phoenicia can also be released as a Vassalized.png feudatory by Flag of Carthage Carthage through its unique missions if the Punic Wars DLC is enabled, as a possible reward for liberating the homeland from the Macedonian warlords that conquered it.

Release requirements[edit | edit source]

Main article: Liberating Phoenicia

The final tasks of the unique Flag of Carthage Carthaginian mission tree Liberating Phoenicia allow Flag of Carthage Carthage to optionally release Flag of Phoenicia Phoenicia after it has conquered the main cities of the region, though with different requirements from the formation decision. Note that while the task itself only requires owning Tyros (743), its prerequisite also requires Flag of Carthage Carthage to own or have subjects that own Sidun (747), Gebal (766), and Arpad (779), making them requirements for releasing Phoenicia as well.

The people of Phoenicia have always been independently minded, by focusing their efforts on trade and commerce across the Mediterranean. It is only right that they will rule themselves, for once.


Phoenician Liberation

The people of Phoenicia have been released to rule themselves, with our guidance and protection if it is ever needed. Our foray into Phoenician lands has been a surprisingly popular move, as we have managed to spin it as a liberation of our ancestors and brethren from hostile rule, making us popular at home as well as among our new subjects in Phoenicia.
