    G'day! Not quite as elegant as Kia Ora is it?!

    Happyguava/Nerissa/Shelley here - I'll answer to any of the above! From Melbourne, Australia.

    Our pod sounds so pretty and ocean-y

    We do appear to be missing the "i" in Oceania making it a bit harder to pronounce I'm sure it will appear in time though. Taniwha also from Wellington, NZ here. Still fairly new to the mermaid thing though!

    Hey, I started making a logo for the pod of Oceana. I'd love some feedback. And I'm really not sure how to color it. If anyone wants to color it or make changes, I can post the original .xcf file.

    I am Aela, founder of the Lilypad Lagoon Mermaids in Melbourne, Australia (waves to Nerissa - also a member!)

    Malinghi - the shark detail within the saltire seems to complex. Suggest replacing the shark scene with a simple shard of Coral, to represent our beautiful reefs?

    I can add more coral to the bottom of the image since Australia's coral reefs are definitely something that should be represented. I want something to be swimming in the central part of the shield. Can you guys recommend something else I could put there? Or if the problem is that its too complex, I can simplify the shark and draw it in profile.

    Also, are there any colors you guys would recommend for the whole thing?

    More Lilypad Lagoon over here

    We're also medieval reenactors, so if you ask us about heraldry we probably will be a little too helpful :P

    I think royal blue for the field and sky blue for the saltire would be nice, maybe with the shark silver. If you want to follow the rules of heraldry you might want to border the saltire between the blues with silver. I'd also lose everything else but the shark in the saltire and make the crest at the top a little more recognisable as coral. I love the sea dragons!

    Hello!

    MeriaMiel from Adelaide. Am I not the only person finding it strange that Oceania has the most beautiful seas and such a small mermaid pod?
    I shall have to get my friends interested, everyone should be a mermaid. ^.^

    The lack of quantity is made up for by the quality of the Mers.

    Oceania, as in Australia, New Zealand, PNG, bits of Asia, all those islands.... Okay so I'm not a geographer, but you get the idea :P

    I quite like the shark. And yes, there should be an "i" in Oceania.

    Merry Meet Merfolk,
    I'm Lunali (luna-lie) I'm from Sydney Australia and I'm brand new to all of this, although i have always been a mermaid at heart, and soon, after i get my very first tail, i will be a mermaid at fin also
    I would love to meet fellow merfolk near me, I'm bubbly, down to sea level and love a good joke, i love to sing and collect pretty shells and make necklaces from them.
    It is just shelltastic to have found this place.
    Love from Lunali <3
