Remarks:

Compiled and published by the Agape Lodge in California.  Edited by Jane Wolfe.2  

The contents include poetry by Aleister Crowley, Jack Parsons & Grady McMurtry.

Crowley was reportedly very unhappy about the contents and quality of this publication.  After he had received a copy of the publication he sent a letter on 4 May 1943 back to Jane Wolfe stating "About 'Oriflamme':  I cannot see the point of this at all.  It is the most amateurish production I have ever set  eyes on.  You give absolutely not one word of the information which people expect when they pick up a new magazine.  Why don't you print the Constitution of the O.T.O. perhaps in an abridged form?  You have got to show who you are, what you stand for, and what you're doing.  You don't even give an address, except a post office box.  I can not imagine any more stupid way of wasting money . . .Anyhow, for the future, please print nothing of mine in such a rag of imbecility!"3
