    Trying to decide which of these 4 I like best, though the 3rd and 4th are probably too complex. Also working on a 5th banner.

    @ Arafel: I'd say the third one is probably too complicated but the fourth might be doable. Once you get it black and white only you can see. But that or a more colored first one would be my vote.

    And seriously, is it possible to just paste pictures somehow or do they have to be online somewhere?

    I feel that this is a good banner for my city

    Well then my vote is definitely 1st or 4th, though the second is cool too. You might consider putting the ones you don't use up for adoption for people who can't or don't want to make their own.

    Thanks for the input, I do intend to put the unused banners up for grabs.

    If I was creative I would have totally made a crest! Instead I opted for a poster for my $50 donation haha.

    My crest will be my avatar; made by Ian. Link to his site is in my sig.

    I wanted a animal not too many people think about when considering Vikings and I though a bull would be a good idea.
    Thanks Ian for the avatar! From:

    Jessica is making my crest; however, she hasn't gotten around to it yet. Hopefully she isn't burnt out on crests. I would totally understand if she was.

    Thinking something based on Odin like a one eyed face, thoughts?

    Mine, done by Jessica, was based on the classic legend of the 8 legged stallion mothered by Loki (whatever else you say about Loki, he was clearly open-minded), Sleipnir.

    My current design is set as my avatar image, but I'm not very happy with it yet. I used to draw this: a lot as a kid in school. So rather than going with a wolf skull, axe head or world serpent wrapped around Yggdrasil (as the serpent around the staff in a caduceus) I figured I'd try to create something that (hopefully) won't already have dozens of other similar crests from the 4000 odd people who get to submit theirs.

    I figured that since trefoil designs are fairly Norse, I'd start with three blades instead of just the two and then try to figure out some way to make that look interesting. I got this far on my initial attempt: . Ernie (otterpoooka) helped me out with it some, suggesting the wavy whitespace along the blade edges and opening up the gaps between the blades as well. The current iteration is from trying to get the whitespace on the edges to suggest a wavy ocean (I tried to put a longship on the waves but can't draw one well enough to make it look remotely good on such a small area) and the rest is just trying to get something that suggests the Odin horn symbol.

    Here's mine, drawn by myself. It's just a quick draw for the moment, will improve it these days. And it's my beagle, old and fat dog

    < My crest was designed by the ever talented Jessica. I like otters, but they seem to get ignored as a heraldic animal often, I guess they dont scratch or bite people.
