The flag of the Antarctic Free State
« on: June 18, 2008, 01:24:16 PM »

Of course, there's no such thing as the Antarctic Free State except as it exists in a novel which I am writing. But I came up with this flag anyway because I'm bored and I like doing stuff when I'm bored.



The bird depicted is the snow petrel, which is the only warmblooded animal which can be found at the South Pole. It's my favorite animal.

In the book, it represents the perseverance of individual liberty and the free market, even under the most oppressive conditions. The motto is Latin for "Persist and thrive".

Hm... Antarctic free state... Quite a fascinating concept...
It makes more sense for humans to colonize Antarctica than Mars anyways. I would be up for it!
People can live there, you know...

Yeah, my buddy just got back from a year long internship with Raytheon building a pipeline of some sort in Antarctica.  There's roughly 3000 people living there from what I gather, all indirectly working for the government.

Good looking flag, but colonization of Antarctica makes far less sense than a Free Island Project.  It's supposedly already owned by some multi-national thing...

"teneo et niteo" is like "I persist and shine" (with a present tense sense). I suggest "tegito et vigito" for "may it persist and thrive"/"it shall persist and thrive".

Sorry. 3 years of certamen has turned me into a latin nazi.

Thanks for the vocab correction, but the tense is as I intended. How would I conjugate "vigito" so it says "I persist and thrive?"

It looks like it's already in first person singular.


___oh wait just saw what vosti said, ne'ermind, didn't see they were already in subjunctive.
