Here's one based off of your criticisms, I'm not a huge fan myself, but let me know what you guys think!

Thank you for the response!

 

However, I think the text for the station is still too small relative to the text for the line.  Also, there is no outline.

 

I will demonstrate my suggestion by riffing on your design with the crude tools at my disposal.

I'm curious to see how the surrounding cities and counties in VA and the counties in MD would look in this format.

It confirms my belief that any DC statehood should involve wrangling Arlington County and Alexandria back for the sake of symmetry and not literally just being one city.

 

But I do like the 45-degree text. It feels fun and dynamic.

That's a whole heck of a lot of money that would be taken out of Virginia.

Yeah, losing Northern Virginia's vibrant killing-people industry would be a real blow to their economy.

There's no valid reason for Virginia to retrocede Arlington and Alexandria to DC.

THESIS: Arlington County belongs in the District

ANTITHESIS: Arlington County belongs in Virginia

SYNTHESIS: Arlington County shouldn't exist

I like how this is progressing - I agree that the DC shape works better than a triangular badge, and the angled text is a nice touch. However, I feel you may have gone too far with the simplification. It should retain some jaggedness as to be recognizable. As it is now, it reads as a boot to me.
