Oasis Coat of Arms / insignia

Post by Rayvenx on 8/15/2014, 10:59 pm

Hi Oasis!

As many of you may know, myself and others are currently working on a project; Oasis University! 

Currently we are working to create an insignia or coat of arms that we would like the entire Oasis community to be involved in. Anyone with any artistic skill, create a coat of arms using colors available in Minecraft so we can recreate it. You can either draw or create the insignia in the game and screenshot and post it here.

Paxination has expressed that he would like the insignia to be imagery of friendship and family, a key value of Oasis!

I hope to see many awesome submissions! Once we get closer to the completion of the University, we will have a vote on the forum for whichever insignia we would like for Oasis University!

Challenge Accepted! already starting on the concept



Using this as a base to start with and there are a lot of symbol-isms in this and what I am putting in.

Motto- Una Terra, Una Societas, Unam Familiam (one land, one society, one family)

Colors
Red -
Eagerness to 
serve his country. Warrior & martyr
Blue -
Steadfastness, strength & loyalty
Gold -
Understanding, respect, virtue and 
majestic -generosity 
Silver -
Cleanliness, wisdom, innocence,
 peace and joy




Symbols
Anvil-
honor
Apple-
generosity, happiness,
peace and salvation
Grape vine-
Represents strength and  
lasting friendship
Lamb-
A symbol of faith, innocence, gentleness, 
purity and resolute spirit.
Mountain-
Hills provide security, shelter 
and protection
Scale-
 fairness and justice.


each section of the shield will represent the 3 servers and one section a collection of non oasis games (league, steam, ect...)


top will be marked with two palm trees on an island with a ruby sunset over crashing waves


symbols would decorate the edges of the shield (this may have the most variations so some symbols may come and go)


Well that is my concept of it so far and i hope it inspires any more versions of it.

Well according to http://www.familytreesandcrests.com/heraldry-symbols.htm the snail is a symbol of deliberation and perseverance not the first thing I would think when it comes to Oasis.

Also I got a rough roughdraft of the pic.



I think ill remove the scale, apple, and anvil from it since it seems to distract from the whole. I will be keeping the vines since they are the symbol of lasting friendship which is what oasis represents to me.

I might need some 3rd party oasis communities to help fill the 4rth square since Steam and League seem lonely in there.

I have this epic snapshot of Madsci's Zelda-mask-pixelart-thingy (Sorry Zelda lovers for not knowing the name o.o) in my Zelda-themed texture pack, but I have no idea how to upload it so I give up. :P

Keep in mind we DO have to replicate these in game. Also, we aren't using unlimited space. I'd like to keep it within 50x50 blocks.

Yeah I know it isn't really what you would call a "Coat of Arms" but it counts as an insignia. I hope you guys like it.

@Mega I like it! I think we should build them horizontal so we can hang them on walls with maps and item frames ;)

These are all great! I think that there are a few smbolisms not present in the traditional sense which was used in the Medieval times we can use here, though. Things that just represent Oasis. For example sheep, leaf blocks, melons vs pumpkins, Lukes Goomy, ect. #JustOasisTings. If this type of ting were to be included I think it would add a nice touch thats unique to Oasis. One that would ring with the community, especially those who have been here for a while.
