    Hey as the start date is quickly approaching i thought i would start this topic.

    Our nation needs a name, it needs a flag, it needs a motto, and it needs a Anthem.

    Of course some things might need to wait for the picking of civilization so this thread can stay open for all that.

    Also things like coat of arms and national birds ect are good. We need these things to bring us together as a nation. As the first demogame we need to set a good example.

    Flag: Embossed image of a dude arguing over prices.

    Motto: "Gimme' Deol... geez guy you sahv meh monee... You gimme deol or I no buy!!!"

    Anthem: "Ohhh!! If your hands ain't be blistered then hey Mister... YOU AIN"T WORKING HARD ENOUGH!!!"

    Sorry I work retail and it's a bish during the Christmas season having to get impatient people haggling for deals all the time and threatning "me no buy or else." *sigh*

    I do honestly feel we should establish what our civilization is before we go picking a flag. I mean what if we settled on a Japanese name, motto, anthem... but we pick China? A little difference between the two no?

    This is just one suggestion:

    Name: Licentia( means freedom in latin, fitting name for a demo game)
    Flag: Its the untitled attachment. I sure a good modder could make it look a lot better!*
    Motto: Vox publicus mos rector nos(The Power of the People will guide us)
    Anthem: Any

    * The color scheme and Symbols:
    Green represts nature and Power
    Purple is wealth/culture
    Blue is our knowledge(techs)
    Red is Power/ Strength/Authority
    Yellow is for Happiness/Power/Wealth(depends on source)
    Black line symbolize athority and power throughout history
    and the cross thing in the middle is the "Cross of Enternity" having the five colors of our flag in it represents enternal what ever they mean!

    OK here is my flag, Blue = Tradtional, Purple = change white = the peace between them, the 3 symbols = Weblings for CIV plus the cross is religion, the hand is defense and the thumb is the sign of our freedom

    How about we wait until we see what civ we want?

    BTW, I would suggest waiting to play the first game until the next patch arrives. (Not gonna give any more info other than that. :) ).

    Oh, and I had better see governor flags! (since Civ4 is a game of metropolises, there might be far less cities, and thus, far less governors.)
