    Exclamation HF Flags

    Edit: This thread was split from another thread here. It deserves it's own discussion space.

    Maybe add a mast as well, to run up a tiny sail (with Jolly Roger) when you've got a following wind...

    fixed it for ya'... I'll have my ensign with me this weekend, but I doubt I'll rig a mast for the sledge.

    Aye, and you'll be bringing the pipes now too, won't you.
    Just what's needed for a wee stroll to the top of Mt Rogers to call in the mornin'.

    I would except for a lack of talent... perhaps I should bring whiskey instead.

    Maybe we need Hammock Forums flags! They could be flown at HF hang outs, individual hangouts, Trail Days (at the Speer & the JRB booths), at home, or any where else a hammocker wanted to
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    I don't have a graphic editor handy, but how about a tan background like the logo already has...

    with this, enlarged, in the upper corner (like the field of stars in the US flag):



    ...and this along the bottom edge (like the lower stripe in the US flag):

    The Hammock Forums Flag graphic already exists. It's JustJeff's avatar.

    Here is one I made from the little JJ avatar. I made it bigger so it would print out a little better. It is not the same but I had to do it in Autocad so the colors and font are a little different.

    That looks great!

    You have to match the font somehow, though...

    I'll post pix on it when it is done. I have not even started it as of today.

    All this FLAG stuff should have its own thread don't cha think. Maybe under the "Hangout" heading so more could see it....
