Yeah, we've discussed it briefly.

Here's what the conversation was somewhat like.

Iohn: "I was thinking of having an open gate on a field of [color] with a sun chief.
Gate: life and death, right of passage, justice, mercy, righteousness
Gate (open): Hospitality, peace
Arch: Victory, rebirth, sanctuary/secret place
Vert, Arch argent middle."

Svipdag: "I think old stonework would be cool, with ivy growin' on it and stuff, to emphasize how long Haven's been here."

there was a lot said in that thread, but I think that was all that was said actually related to the symbol. I meant to draw something up, but I was drugged out on pain meds and forgot.

I'm glad someone revived the topic. Once we get one made I will edit the Header we have for the forum and put it up there. Smile

draw pictures people and put them up here, or just post more ideas. We'll come up with something epic.

yeah keeping symbols simple enough for people to make is important. Though having a nice fancy one is great for making banners and stuff. Ideally you have a heavily stylized symbol and a more geometric simplified version that is easy to apply to a sheild front or a tabard.

will you stop starting your posts w/ "no offense" its offensive
but yes your right it has to be moderate it cannot be to complex
the original can be complex and ornate; then its a simple matter of taking that outline for a symbol. yes??
so far these are the ideas i have come with and attempted to draw lol
a candle burning at both ends
a wall with a wood door half open to stone walk way
a green torch w/ engraved handle
a bird flying through an open gate into the sunset
a blade w/ the hilt being an angel(Seraphim) who's wings make a cross guard
a bird with walls upon each wing
thats it
likkle bro made a beautiful stone wall and gate w/ a sweet lamp set atop the arch its look purdy
thats it!

Speaking of symbols, can you do a sketch for me Skeith?

Pirate flag, black background, skull with two meat cleavers as the crossbones in center all white, hourglass on left of skull in red, and a hand print on right of skull in red.

thanks, and if it looks awesome, you may claim a boon from Butcher's Bay in the future.

What I have been having in mind are two related symbols. One more complex and elaborate and then a more simple one created for the purpose of easy duplication. Everyone seems to like the idea of a gate so I'm thinking the gate imagine would be better as the elaborate design. And on the top of the gate have a symbol and that symbol will be used for duplication. That way the two are related and make it much more recognizable.

May i make a suggestion? how about every unit has it's own symbol but everyone has a "badge" that has the haven symbol on it, that way like the pirates have there own flag but they still represent haven...kinda like dominion..

I think an arch would be a very simple and reasonable symbol. It's the image of safe passage, moving on (which in a way could mean redemption) and protection. Plus anyone could paint an arch on their shield. Thats my idea basing it off what you guys want.

EDIT: Also no problem on the symbol Jagun it takes me no time, it IS what I wanna do for a living. lol

okie dokie, it seems like this symbol issue is getting out of hand, and the time is definitely approaching when we need to have a symbol. IN AN ATTEMPT TO RECTIFY THIS SITUATION, I would like to host a Symbol Idea Party!!! I do not have details yet, but I just want everyone to be aware so you can get your ideas together to bring to my symbol Shindig.

It's not really getting out of hand at all.....and let me know when this shindig is. Hopefully I can make it, if not I'll just post more crap online.
I'm good at that. XDXD

People are just excited to see the symbol that will represent us. Cassi and I are working together to make something grand. Just keep in mind that Betsy Ross made many flags before the first American flag was sewn.

I am in full support of a gate or archway. But I'd prefer an arch, whichever color. So if you do hold this idea party, my vote is for an arch. Besides, if I don't get what I want I will cry and throw a temper tantrum.
