A continent (from Liliani, continere, "to hold together") is a large, continuous land mass, by most geographical conventions. However, some large island groups also qualify as their own continents or as part of a continent. For example, Maritimia itself, or as part of Melania.
The continents of Vexillium are the following:

|The Old Continents:||The New Continents, or Nova Vexillium:|
|Part of the Old Continents:|
The division between Old and New Vexillium is along the 90° East and 90° West meridians (except for Polaria and Glaciaria).
The continents can also be divided in two other groups: The Western Hemisphere and the Eastern Hemisphere. The division lines are the 0° and 180° meridians.
