    While I can't find a picture of it, that looks a LOT like one of the finalists (not the actual one though) for Orlando's new flag.

     

    Now that you say it, yeah, it looks a bit like options 1, 2 and 3 of Orlando's finalists mashed together (see below).

    And it also gives me dejavu vibes of Milwaukee's flag redesign winner:

    In any case, it's still a nice design.

     

    What are your favorites in Rochester's contest?

    So my former hometown of Rochester, Minnesota is holding a contest to replace...whatever the heck this is.

    They're doing a two round voting system with the intention of unveiling a new flag next spring. (link here.)

     

     

    I just saw that their round 2 voting is now open, so I thought I'd bump this thread so the forumites can cast their vote. Plenty of rubbish in there but also some nice ones. Overall, I think this round has some nicer designs than the first round. 

    To see all the entrants and cast your vote, follow this link:

    Here are my five favourites:

     

    No. 0222 - A cross to symbolise St. Mary’s Hospital on the left, and an abstract Plummer Building (Mayo Clinic) on the right.

    VplRLXwMYPmZaV4I2iN28TUzLIm6Rju2mQOCO8_R

     

    No. 0246 - Three geese in V-flight formation, symbolising "dedication", "intuition" and "care"

    iyRTU81hQQoRHExa5mLCs3ALQer517J4-JrRrEhW

     

    No. 0249 - A goose on the Zumbo River, in Mayo Clinic / IBM blue

    FRwdBMVy7v29zqOwo7UdTppkpaKF3XQKRXuFNOW9

     

    No. 0268 - A quartered cross to symbolise medical care, cardinal points on a compass, "debating, cooperating, or whimsically, elegant and having fun on the ice rinks" and geese "making a bee-line (or vee-line) for Rochester". I can't quite follow most of that symbolism, but hey, the design does look nice! ;)

    No. 0281 - The North Star shining over Rochester

    ...Timeless.

     

    Honestly, I really don't get why it's such a huge deal to many on here if a jersey template has already been used by some other adidas team at some point. That whole "cookie cutter argument" is a tired and petty trope. As long as a design suits the club well, looks nice and makes it unique in MLS, what gives?

     

    Nobody's gonna mistake the Dynamo for Bayern Munich because they also had tonal stripes in a previous season. Just like nobody mistook them for the German NT when they both shared a chevron design.

     

    Don't get me wrong: If some trends go overboard, like all the grey and BFBS kits this year, hells yeah, let's bash that. If a design violates your receptors, romp-and-stomp it and pluck the eyes out of anyone who disagrees. But demanding manufacturers to reinvent the wheel every single time for every single kit, for every single team, for every single season, that's just asking for too much. That's not about high standards or customer first, that's just being a spoiled, entitled gnat. Go and knit your own damn artisan hippie jerseys! :lol:

    I'm coming in late on this thread, so this may have already been touched on but...

     

    Portland Pioneers

     

    Alliteration, has a local connection, and there is a historical precedence:

    Portland Pioneers is an awesome name as well. And I can already see the team retaking this team photo with the exact same hairdos! :D

    Ilves usually wears green and gold.  

     

    Woah, that logo is redefining beauty it’s so marvellously ugly! All their fans must feel like the proudest parents in the world! :lol:

  6. Really good basis you got there. The main thing that irks me is how the bat is pinned on to the basketball lines, like some butterfly in a museum. Give the poor thing more room to breathe! Maybe let the lines end with pointy tips or claws before they even touch the bat. As for colors - yeah, they're gaudy, but it works for this identity.
