    Hm that new version of the dragon makes a cool picture, but I feel excessive in the flag (like the horse in 40Js... it was a cool idea, but it was too complex an image).

    Plexus one thing I like about your flag designs is their simplicity in color, and 40J, one thing I favored in yours was the layout. This is why I'm hoping for a good middle ground (which so far to me has been Plexus's stars, characters, and dragon in 40Js layout).

    I like Plexus's version 8 the most out of any.

    Killer I would say it's too early for a poll, as we are still in the design phase.

    Plexus, the embossed look is awsome, but (asking everyone, not just you) does it fit a flag image?

    If you look at most flags they have symbols and not picutes, thus I liked the simple dragon, and the characters and stars, plus the triangle thingie, and that white star.

    I didn't like the more complex dragon, nor the horse.

    Personally, I would like to have our flag as something that could function as an actual flag. This is the main reason why I do not like embossing.

    In light of my recent oppinions, I have decided gradient, though cool for a design and such, is not nessisarily (I simply don't know how to spell that word) the best idea. I believe all flags are solid, opaque, and simple, and while we could make an exception, there's a reason flags are like that.

    I agree, altough your newest one looks great, v. 8 is your best.

    I dont think embossing fits in a flag.

    Most flags dont have gradients either, but I think the gradient in FortyJ flag looks cool though :)

    How would Plexus flag look like if we centered the text and stars on the left half of the flag, and the dragon on the other?
    And no embossing. Though I like embossing many times, it doesn't fit on a flag.

    I got it! We need a fancy seal--with embossing and gradients and whatnot, and then we need a simple flag! What do you guys think?

    Just move the dragon a bit left to make the margins equal and it'll be perfect.
