Prehistory and Viking Age
Human settlement in Parnu became possible 13,000-11,000 years ago, when the ice from the last glacial era melted. The oldest known settlement in Parnu is the Pulli settlement, which was on the banks of the river Pärnu, near the town of Sindi, in southwest Parnu. According to radiocarbon dating, it was settled around 11,000 years ago.
from 871-879 various viking trade routes were established leading to profound interest in the region, homes were often filled with residents and wandering tradesmen as there were not alot of places to stay for these people.
The administrative region of Laanemaa would be the first Parnu-like identity as these "administrative regions" were actually more sovereign states that would work together if there was a threat.
Around 1207 the livonian order would take a hold of the Baltics and later advance into Estonia taking Sakala and a small amount of Laanemaa.
The Livonian order lasted until 1237 as they were asimmilated into the Teutonic order and it would exist as the Livonian Confederation throughout 1410 to 1583 during the Livonian war. in 1561 Parnu became merged with "The Duchy of Courland and Semigallia" this would be owned by different countries including:
after 1795 the "Governorate of Livonia" was established by The Russian Empire in the "Capitulation of Estonia and Livonia." This governate had nine administrative divisions including Pernau. while under the Russian control autonomy were in the hands of "Baltic nobility" through "landtag".
The governates of Estonia and Livonia were merged to create Estonia. From 1944 to 1991 Estonia was under russian occupation again until the 1991 fall of the soviet union.
The Republic of Parnu gained independence from Estonia in 1991 after they declared independence from Estonia.
The "Forrest Brothers fighting against the soviet union in ww2 using gorilla tactics lead to a unified Parnu-ish identity and this layed the groundwork for the Parnu military and defence force.
The Republic of Parnu's flag is currently this:
[Oct 25 2092- current
and coat of arms version
"Symbolism; red symbolises the heart of our people, the blue waves are the water and also the ribbons of our merevägi (navy) that symbolises a strive forward. The white side element symbolises the un-stained bricks of pärnu City and our strength, the Yellow encased red 5 pointed star is a symbol placed between our heart and our strenght. It also represents the 5 continents of which communism may stand.The coat of arms will stay the same, because the Pärnu bear will never surrender, it unites and is the heritage symbol of the Pärnu people." source
[Feb 17 2085-Oct 2092]
February 17th is when Parnu held another flag referendum, two flags were proposed that added a black border to the crest. Flag A had a thick border , flag B had a thin border.
After counting votes the flag A beat flag B and beating those votes which preferred the original.
3 votes for the new designs and 3 to keep the original as Parliament voted on the new flag.

[ Sep 8 2083- March 9 2085]
On September 8th 2083 this became the national flag after a poll was conducted on a proposed flag [ see here ] but the results were 6(for) and 5(against) so the government compromised on this decision and created the flag currently used [ source ] | as standard the PNB news bulletin thumbnail template was also changed.
[ new template ]
[ old template ]
Parnu flag [ 2082-2083 ]
This flag became the national flag after the previous was deemed too indistinguishable from the Shetland islands' flag and thus on the 4th of July 2082 [25th November 2022a.d] the Government changed the flag and PNB released a bulletin on why they did this : The Republic of Pärnu changes flag | Politics and War
PNB was subject to change their template as instructed by the government and so as such the template thumbnail PNB used were changed by designers using the correct flag.
[ old template pre-flag change ]
[ modern template after flag change ]
Even though PNB were only asked to change the flag, the designers enlisted on this project took this time to develop a more aesthetically pleasing design. Side bars were added, the flag changed, a filter was placed over the image and the blue colour was hue shifted upwards giving a lighter tone.

The great time failure
It was January 2083 but all clocks and digital time keeping records displayed dates from Jan 1st to Jan 3rd as "2082". The first notice of this was made by several sources working in Parnu's commerce , industry, transport and cyber sectors as these disrupted communication. One person called the cyber and telecoms minister Riina Jarvinen about this discrepancy and soon emails were sent to every parnu.gov email address explaining this and how engineers are working to fix the situation.
From: Riina Jarvinen@Parnu.gov
Hello Today you may or may not have noticed that the year is incorrectly displaying "2082" just to be clear today is not 2082 it is a mistake / malfunction. We are working hard to rectify this | Recommended to not use any calendar , weather or trade calculating applications until we solve this. If you have any information regarding this issue please reply back
Above is an excerpt from the Email mass spread, as you can see this is a specific email account "SevKirylPNB" This is Sev Kiryl, the main overview manager at PNB [Parnu News Broadcaster] the bulletin company reliable for most news coming from and about Parnu. However Sev did not put any bulletin in production, instead he forwarded the email to the Parnu Times [ a faster none-gov funded news network ] and they released the bulletin independently New Year's glitch? | Politics and War.
after this all happened, on January 17th 2083 researchers discovered the reason for the time failure [ the following is an excerpt from
PM speech | understanding the time failure on new years eve | Politics and War
"We found out that this was caused by the clock reaching it's 32 bit interger limit , how did we find this out? well.. the 32 bit limit is 2,147,483,647. from 1970 is when this clock started and the limit when translated into readable words would be 2038 so what we did was 2038-1970=68 . Knowing that the gap was 68 years and knowing that the Orbis clock started in 2014 we can 2014+68= 2082"

Systems Empire invasion of Parnu 2089
The invasion of Parnu was a military invasion into Parnu by The Systems Empire that commenced during an Orbis-wide several alliance war.
( post invasion- Alliance map by NY )
March 29th 2089
Systems aircraft enter Parnu airspace from the North and East and headed straight for the Capitol (Parnu City) -Parnu AA managed to inflict casualties on the aircrafts-
"EMP and graphite bombs fell on the capital and nearby military installations cutting power and scrambling communications."
Several bombs were dropped on Parnu and Parnu city as well as around and on many military instillations that weren't immediately engaged in AA combat
" Systemian legions and army groups were ordered to move in, cutting into the countryside of Parnu, and strikiing from all sides. Air support helped push back the fierce resistance many of the units were facing. "
March 30th 2089
Although the Parnu military were capable to repel invasions and had the technological capability to protect Parnu for at least a couple of months, Parnu decided to surrender to The Systems Empire under the guise of the protection of Parnu and systems people and protection of cities and monuments as well as lives on each side. Simply Parnu was able to repel the attack but the war for both sides would be extremely detrimental.
(Parnu declaration of surrender)
Note: Systems did not invade Parnu for invading Parnu but to invade Parnu as Parnu is in The Global Watch and Systems is at war with the GW through their alliance ISP.
Note: Parnu surrendered so early in the war that Systems had not even made it past their first part of their invasion plan.
