Our new logo
We're not saying yet that this is the FINAL logo, but this is our current Air Force approved logo.
Logos and names of games (and otherwise) are always controversial - they are almost never universally loved.
For what it's worth, we did put a lot of thought into the design of this logo - it is closer to our original logo, but not with the "old school" treatment. It is also more representative of a "one world" United Star Force, as the organization is supposed to be, not just a United States entity with United States fighters.
Here is the breakdown of the different parts of the logo and what they represent:
At the center of the bottom circle is another circle - this represents a United Earth;
The four parts of the split bottom circle: army, air force, navy, marines;
The negative symbol in the bottom circle is of a star fighter;
The wings represent the United Star Force's reach from Earth's orbit to the outer planets of the star system, and beyond;
The negative planet formed by the curvature of the wings represents fallen soldiers, who gave their lives in defense of peace, human rights, and United Earth values;
Finally, the star represents our sun, as well as the hope for peace.
We know this art will be met with some smiles and some frowns, but it is our sincere hope that you all will grow to love this logo as we do.
