[Important] Drawing on the field of the shield

Postby Aula Flavia Philippa » Fri Mar 09, 2018 10:37 am

As part of our project to create a common legion, I present to you the draft of the emblem for the Legion shield. Comment, supplement, offer. This proposal, this sketch, what is invented inside Sarmatia, but we are waiting for new creative ideas.
Since this is a black and white sketch, I want to explain: the shield's field is dark blue, the rest is golden (yellow) with red shades, fish - in light blue tones with the addition of white

Salve Philippa,

I'm probably too late but I give you anyway my opinion...
How about to use the image of dolphins as they were depicted in the antiquity? Something like this:

An excellent idea, and most importantly in a sense historically justified. It seems to me that if other options are not presented to the public in the near future, then it will be necessary to arrange a vote on this issue to choose the best option presented. How do you like this idea, dear fellow citizens?
