    I see you combined them both. We can't actually upload our own custom flag and use it as our flag in the game though can we?

    No, we have to be one of the top eight to get that. Kinda bites! How hard would it be to allow a weblink to the flag?

    Thats why is the 'Super Secret flag'.

    It looks a little better on a maroon background.

    Would it be very difficult to cut "Terra Arcanum The World of Troika Games" off the bottom?

    You can always take it to Photoshop and paste or clone over the lettering. That'll leave a clean bar across the bottom of the logo. Even as small as the graphic is, it shouldn't too difficult to get a good result. May I also suggest doing a flipped clone of the knob on the left to balance the bar?

    Cloning the knob and putting a new motto on the bar would look good.

    But I'm only putting the idea out there, I've already got Maximus doing a lot on the GC forums and I only have Gimp to do images with and its stopped working for some reason. So if someone else wants to try I don't think Maximus would care if you posted your own version of the flag.

    Editing out the words and changing the bar to be equal on both sides is easy. What would you want printed in there instead?

    The flag is just a suggestion open for comments. If there's a better design out there, post it here. I think we should stick with the black over maroon background though.

    Well I'll give it some thought, do you want it in Latin?

    Also, if your open to suggestions, would it be hard to make the cog the same colour as the HoL text?

    All that is easy, but if the gear is the same color as the text, wouldn't it blend in? how about an off-shade?

    Latin is good too, as it sounds more official.

    Since you asked nicely, here's the Link to the generic background, to keep color and size consistent.

    I don't know the latins world at the moment,
    but how about writing "for world dominance" or something under the text?:p

    I'll go to the Uni library in the next few days and get a decent English to Latin Dictionary, online translators tend to suck.

    Randomly using Frigo's links.
    --------------------------
    Primoris regnums cosmicos
    "Foremost kingdoms of the world" (I can't find a latin term for nation)

    Inviolabilis civitas
    "Unassailable Union" (I don't know either, I got that far and got stuck)

    Convenit beneficiarius adsisto pariter
    "We (the) priveledged soldiers stand together"

    Convenit arbitratus devinco
    "We will conquer"

    Terra debellators
    "World conquerors"

    Convenit Primoris regnums cosmicos arbitratus devinco universa
    "We (the) foremost kingdoms of the world shall conquer all"

    I think the last one is the best. The only problem is that it might be too long to fit under "House of Lords".
