Quote from: Sir Txec dal Nordselvă, UrB on March 13, 2023, 07:49:40 AMIs it just me or are the squirrels just a bit scary? Also, is the motto different?
Quote5.1 The Coat of Arms of Talossa shall exist in two forms: the Lesser State Arms and the Greater State Arms. The Lesser State Arms is thus blazoned: "Argent the Chinese Character 'Ben' meaning energetic Sable. Surrounding the Escutcheon an Annulet Azure fimbriated Or bearing the words 'Regipäts Talossán Kingdom * 26.12.1979 *' Or. For the Crest a Royal Crown Proper." The Greater State Arms consists of the Lesser State Arms with the following supporters and base: "Two Talossan Squirrels Proper standing upon a Ribbon Argent fimbriated at the chief Vert and at the base Gules bearing the motto 'Miehen Huone on Hänen Valtakuntasna'". Either form of the Coat of Arms of Talossa may be used for official and patriotic purposes."

Quote from: Üc R. Tärfâ on March 13, 2023, 08:38:12 AMEDIT: the original 37RZ10 had Valtakuntansa (as in my draft), but in the lexhatx there's Valtakuntasna. When that change happened? Or it is just a transcribing error that need to be fixed?

Tärfâ on March 13, 2023, 10:25:55 AMWell, consider that the whole point to do them vectorial is to generate neater version in different size, the file I posted is a png so when you shrink is not neat. I can generate smaller version from the original svg (I didn't upload the svg of the smaller coa on the wiki because at that time our wiki didn't allow me to upload svg, I don't know if now I can but I still have the svg and I can upload it anytime) and the words will be more readable. However, I can try to make the words of the motto bigger to use all the ribbon.

If you feel that one of them, or another svg, is better than the one I used, I can swap them. Right now I can try to modify the eyes of the one I used.

Quote from: Üc R. Tärfâ on March 14, 2023, 01:01:17 PMI rebuilt them completely from scratch. I will update the Lesser State Arms on the wiki soon.I tried to make the original squirrel slightly less scary, and I used the one suggested with few fixes. I still believe it is too comic-ish.
