Second, I see no reason for why we can't use the nordic flags around the edge like the NG. Just because they did it first doesn't mean they have a right to it.


I don't think any of us from NG have ever suggested for one second that you guys can't use our idea of a round logo with the flags around the edge. As I understood it it was more a case of not wanting to look like you guys had copied our logo and had come up with something similar but different.

If you want to go round then let me know and I'll get you the files from our logo.

I think that was exactly the reason - people might think we had just 'stolen' your logo or something, or they might confuse us, if our logos were so similar.


I, as Lora, still like my first idea best, followed by the wampa one.

The reason why I like the square patch is that I've heard some people say that it's boring that all patches are round. We would stick out a bit more on the rebel side as well if we didn't do a round patch.

I still prefer Camilla's with the wampa, if we only could get a wampa that isn't a photo.

I kinda like round. Wink A circle without end.

Hmm, I had some thing in my mind, but I've got no idea wether I can draw a proper wampa... Confused

A wampa in the middle was my idea also, but the problem is how to draw a Wampa. Confused

Why not make a post in Rebel Rumblings asking for an artists impression of a Wampa? We have a load of resources and great artists in RL (along with other non members Im sure) who would be more than willing to help you guys out...just a thought...

Your logo ideas are great guys!

Justin Monk drew up a Wampa for a proposed Wampa Squadron. Might be worth asking him for it.

Thanks for the advice, guys! Ben

That might help speed things along. What you say, guys and gals? Should we turn to the rest of this bunch? Wink

So.. in these days without internet, I used an evening on making some logo suggestions for NO. Wink

I made my basic idea and then two variations. Also did two colored versions, just so give you an idea for what it will look like as a patch.

No. 1(basic):


No. 2(warning sign):


No. 3(wampa hand):


That is my three versions. Here come two colored.




Now, these are without text, because I didn't want to attempt doing that by hand. Second, for the text it can either be around the inner flag edge, or there can be made an extra small circle between the flag circle and the center image, to house the text. What do you think?

I really, really love those Lora Very Happy


I would be prepared to go with one of them.
I think for simplicity, if/when we're going to get patches made, that we should go for the simplest one - that is to say without the sign or the paw, even though they're really cool.

I agree with Camilla on that the more simple the better.

Yeah, that's what I thought, too, eventhough I love the warning sign. Wink

So, does that mean we are actually close to agreeing on the patch? I tried combining the different things people said they wanted in the new patch, and hope I succeded.

Flags to show where we belong; wampa's cave 'cause it's what we are(have to think of the mascot); and the Rebel crest 'cause we are after all the Rebel Legion. Wink

Anyone want to do scripted version?

I can't do any change of the pic myself, but I've been playing around a bit with the colours of the main part in Paint. I think it would look best if we took the same orange and black that is in the main RL logo and then just had the mountain with the cave over that. If we wanted to have a clear difference between the cave and the black background I would suggest using a dark grey for the cave.

Yeah, I'd love to see how that looks. Very Happy

I went with the ice blue color for the crest, 'cause it's nordic, it's cold and it makes me think of ice and cold(Hoth). Plus blue is the color almost all pilots helmets have the crest in in AHN.(Except Luke; made him easier to recognize). Wink

Shall I put up a thread looking for someone, who can help finishing the logo in Rebel Rumblings?

If you gimme a couple of days I'll try to get the original files of the NG logo and see if I can put something together for you.

Of course I'll have to add a huge "The Rebellion sucks" right across it put I'm sure none of you will mind Wink

If I can't do it then I'll let you know.

OK, this is VERY rough but you get the idea at least. Personally I don't like the black and orange, it doesn't match with the rest of the logo but it's not my logo Wink

To do:
- line up the text properly
- find a more Star Warsy font (maybe EpisodeI)
- digitise the cave pic
- clean it all up a bit

Hmm, just had an idea, instead of Rebel Legion & Nordic Outpost, how abuot Nordic Outpost at the top and Wampa's Cave at teh bottom? Then peopel will know what the pic is of.

Anyway, here goes...



Please hit me with some feedback and I'll make changes. TK-4918 (my Pohotshop master) is in town on Wednesday so I'll try to make a more polised version then.

Hope you like it.
