    Seoul used the same symbol Korea uses, same for Toronto and Canada.

    There was an image cap issue I was running into at first, it is why I had not updated Antioch and Babylon actually. I have a work around I could go back and add those, however.

    I would still prefere to have those in the city state symbology section too.
    Great!
    Btw for me the icon is visible for those too, only in a different style than for the other ones.

    Is the Inca symbol the same as the one in CIv5?

    They both take their inspiration from the chakana, a stepped cross believed to represent the three "levels of existence," the city of Cusco and the Southern Cross constellation, but their interpretations/stylisations of the symbol are very different. The Civ6 version is clearly a lot more faithful to the "original's" straight angles than the Civ5 version.
    Here's a screenshot of the Civ6 icon, by the way, since it doesn't seem to have been posted here yet.

    I wonder what the symbols for Phoenicia, Sweden, Mali, and Ottomans will be.

    I'm guessing Sweden and the Ottomans will be similar to their Civ5 icons.

    I doubt Phoenicia's will be the same as Carthage in Civ5.

    Not sure if Mali's will be the same as it's Civ4 one.

    Phoenicia should be the Cedar or the Quinqireme, but I can easily see it being the symbol of Tanit (Astarte) since it's as iconic while also being simpler to draw.

    Also, they used the Tanit for the Carthage city state.

    I'm just about completely certain that Sweden will just inherit Stockholm's icon, as Canada has done with Toronto's.

    Worth noting that the playable Sweden civ represented in the Vikings, Traders and Raiders scenario uses this icon.

    Here is Mali's present day variant flag which they might use the middle symbol (kanaga) unless they go for something gold related like a brick or coin.

    Cool! Where did she say that?

    Oddly, I spotted something similar to the Nubian symbol on some Egyptian pottery recently.

    I love this thread! Nice work DJ Tanner. One correction though - I believe Hattusa's icon is the Hittite Sun https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hittite_sun_disk - not just a chariot wheel

    I would also say that Antioch's icon is not Ignatius but based on St. Sepaphima, given the head gear and similar hand position:

    It looks like a representation of the Djenné Mosque to me. I'm surprised it wasn't the kanaga figure, that would have been quite good, I think.
