    Pod of Cali coat of arms

    Okey dokey! So, lets make a coat of arms. I think we should include our state fish, the Garibaldi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garibaldi_(fish) and maybe also go outside of just fish and include some poppies http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_poppy Maybe we could do some kind of mixture of yellow, orange, and gold for a color scheme. What do you guys think?

    When I first created the pods I started making coats of arms for all of them. I only completed coats of arms for five of the pods, but Cali was one of them. You guys are welcome to make a new coat of arms, but just so you know, this is what the coat of arms is for Cali right now:

    I like the coat you made. Does that include all of california, or just So Cal?

    Apparently, it only took me living here for a year to feel entitled to start getting jingoistic about the difference between northern and southern california

    I also kind of think that we should have one for both nor cal and so cal.... I have lived in both places and they are SOOOOOOOOOOOOo drastically different. I like the coat of arms as it is for so cal, but maybe do something with a fresh water fish and maybe a little more toned down color wise to show the mountain/forest like areas of norcal. Maybe I'm thinking too much of tahoe and maybe there should be broader scale to encompass all of norcal. I dunno just my thoughts lol
    When anxious, uneasy, and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and it drowns them out with its great wide sounds, it cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.

    Its for all of California and most of Nevada. I was uncertain about the borders and how big to make the pods since I didn't want them to be too big, but I also didn't want there to be too many of them. The final size and borders were determined based on several things:

    1. They're sized that they should be as large as possible while still enabling people to travel by car, and they aren't to numerous.
    2. They try to make sure no one is an island. Right now there are so few mers in San Francisco than a north cali pod would just have one or two people that wished they were in a pod with all the mers in LA.
    3. The borders try to match cultural borders. I did this using a bunch of maps, including the connected states of america.

    I can tell you more about it if you'd like. I appreciate the feedback.
