The Light Brigade was a flag on the Sage Ocean. It was founded on August 20, 2005 by Captain Tealbeard of the Lost Lot. The name comes from the poem The Charge of the Light Brigade by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

The Light Brigade was the first player-controlled flag on Sage to colonize an island, Isle of Kent. The Light Brigade also won Spaniel Island two weeks after, making it the flag that was first to colonize both islands. The Light Brigade's former monarch, Helystra, was the Governor of Spaniel Island.
