Symbols of Europa


Orioni
 Share

Recommended Posts

It's been years now that we've used the sumbols of the European Union as our own signs as well. I feel that the time has come for us to have our own, original mark. That's why I'd like to ask everyone who is at least a bit interested in graphic design to post their idea(s).

 

I would like to suggest that you make things not to complicated, for example 100 stars spelling 'Europa'. The simpler logo's are usually much more easy to recognise and identify with.

 

I'm looking forward to see what you can come up with, so go ahead and be creative!

 


Something I made up last night..

I know this is going to go down like a lead balloon, but......

 

 

I really like Tags flag. It's the most original and outstanding flag I've seen on NS. It's amusing and striking. Perhaps not as our main flag, but I reckon we could find a place for it somewhere......

 

I will know don my kevlar and hunker down. armycoolm1helmet.gif

I'd go for one that is wholly original, and not one based up the current EU flag.

 

I know that's difficult, I would give it a try, but my artistic skills are represented above.

 

The blue and gold/yellow colours are striking, but is it too closely linked with the EU?

 

Would it also be possible to use a representation of the Europa map, rather than real-life Europe or the real-life world?

1) I agree. That's kinda the reason why I wanted to start this thread.

 

2) Let's talk about some symbols that might represent our region.

- A group of people.

- Nations.

- Friendly.

- Diplomatic.

- Army.

What else could be combined in some sort of logo?

 

3) True. A different color combination is possible. This wikipedia article about Coat's of Arms could be inspiring for some: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coat_of_Arms

 

4) I would use neither. Not the map, since that's still quite unclear for the moment. And not RL Europa/earth, because that's not us.

 

 

I'd like to get more ideas for #2 if that's possible. Feel free to post some inspirational examples (regarding look and/or style) while you're at it.

A coat of arms sounds good. A flag divided into four with each segment representing a different ideal. something like...

 

- Diplomatic (a scroll or something)

- Army (Sword, a Shield, Spear tip, Fist, Bow etc etc)

- Justice (Scales)

- Can't think of a fourth segment unsure.gif

Based on the previous suggestions, here are some of the items I'd like to combine.

 

Peace - The olive branches you see around the UN flag.

Friendship/diplomacy - I'll cut-out the hands you see here.

Justice - Scales, as Scipii suggested.
