How about a pair of white carnivore eyes, against a dark background (a stylised version of something like this)?

This fits the white-on-black theme of the other barbarian flags, and symbolises the threat of wild animals to early humans.

(I have no art, sorry.)


Likewise, no art here, but what about 'glow eyes' and crossbones? Effectively just replacing the usual skull motif with the eyes.

We're also missing flag for "Animal Kingdom" barbarian nation. patch #5577.

Here are some animal kingdom flags. They are based on paw prints. It does look sort of friendly which could be bad. I tried drawing eyes but it didn't work.

If you decide to use them, you can sight me as "The Square Cow" but you don't need to. These flags so simple that I consider them to be public domain, and if they aren't then I release them to be so.

The animal-extra_large.png is the base image which the others are shrunken from.

They look nice. The 'friendliness' is probably due to the lack of claws on the end of the paws. Shrinking down the paws a little bit, and adding an elongated triangle with concave rounding on the bottom would probably take care of that.

Claws, teeth, eyes, that's all good.

Here's my attempt at my eyes idea.

Oh, that /DOES/ look nice, JTN (With the exception of the small shield one, but that's just because it's so small.)
It certainly conveys the sense that this unit is dangerous, and the white on black standard for barbarians.
Now you just need to make them auto-attack any nearby units and give them partial-invis, lol.

I like JTN's art as well, and would favour it over mine. I like how the shield graphics are suggestive of heads.

Temple of Artemis with better licensing terms for us: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File: ... rtemis.jpg

Mausoleum. Wikimedia licensing lists this as only 70+ years from the author's death, but it's the same author, and made same year, as Temple of Artemis and Statue of Zeus, and the file info states that it's 100+ years: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File: ... nassus.jpg

See patch #5233.

I found this rather nice picture of the Tomb of Mausolus. Unluckily, I can no longer convert or create graphics. But Someone will take shot at it.

Where from? Which kind of licensing it has?
