Perhaps it could be placed on the Zouaves' article directly? Not sure we have enough "organizational heraldry" (yet -- cough) to justify its own section, but it would still be appropriate on the relevant organization's page.


This makes perfect sense. I've added it under the official logo on their wiki article.
This seems the most appropriate place to put this. I have updated the Arms of the Gentry page on the wiki with Antonio and my arms which were granted on Monarchy Day.

I also uploaded the Zouavs Achievement, but I wasn't sure what page it should go on.

Keeping in mind that our national cuisine is Taco Bell, I would think it should be something Mexican-inspired (but of a higher quality / more culturally accurate than TB, of course).

Not street food, but some of the best food I've ever eaten was at a hole-in-the-wall taco joint in San Diego. (Actually, lots of good food in SD, but that's beside the point.)

Elote perhaps?

A delightfully unexpected but perfectly apropos outcome!

It looks good as far as I can tell!

Thank you so much! I am honoured and look forward to the challenge!

In looking through the current status of applications, I see this very nice job by our OAF. Nicely done. Now that you've completed an arms project, you are entitled to become a Fellow in the College. You have the option of choosing one of the previously established fellowships such as The Lookout Fellow, The Fulbright Fellow (my own previous role), or we can create one just for you. Once you've decided let us know and we will make it so.


Thank you so much! I am honoured by the Squirrel Viceroy, and will accept The Fulbright Fellow.
Congratulations to the new Squirrel King, Squirrel Viceroy, and Dean!

All well deserved!

This was my flag idea inspired by the tierce of the Lesser State Seal. I originally had the colors the original way, but I like the Long Fellow's reversal because it makes more sense.

I do think they would probably look better with the Long Fellows more ornate borders.

I like the idea of differentiating the borders based on house, since that avoids some of the color problem. However, I kept the seals circular, in part because in my opinion a circle works better in the center of a flag.

I've chosen to separate the national colors between the houses for three reasons: one, as a flag design, this gives us more space without having to feel like we cannot straddle a division of the field. Two, the red in the Bicoloreu represents the Talossan people and their tenacity -- thus, as the more directly elected "popular" house, it is fitting that the Cosă uses this red. Three, green being the upper stripe and red the lower stripe is analogous to upper and lower houses.

The Senäts' more ornamental border includes eight red jewels to represent the eight provinces of the nation.


These are beautiful Long Fellow!

I like that a lot. A stylized representation of the top of the Merrill building... That seems very suitable.

It's basically a square in proportions, so I think any containers or borders around it should be rounded squares. They should preferably also be simple, since the emblem itself is quite visually complex already. We can't just differentiate with red and green, since the most common form of color blindness prevents people from being able to distinguish those easily. Maybe each house of the Ziu gets a different style of border? Like the Cosa gets a single line border, while the Senats gets a triple line?


Something kind of like this?

I've done a little embellishment. Submitted for your review.


This is lovely, Carlus!

Thank you!

I thought the bottom looked a little strange so here is a version cropped.

Or perhaps focusing on the top half of the facade which is the most unique part of it, and would keep it from looking like a face... I can also do a couple of details on the towers on either side as well.

Also, is it supposed to be funny with the eyes and the mouth? Not that it was put there intentionally, but I feel it demerits the seriousness of the house of law that it should represent.

Thank you for your comments! No, it's not meant to be a face or to be funny, that's how the windows at the front of the building look.
