Tried to make the logo as large as possible but may have gone too far with it. This would work as a one sided burgee, mirror image on other side, which will keep the cost down a bit. Anyway, just another shot at it and again my apologies to rochepoint and Bacchus.

No apologies necessary - at least as far as I'm concerned - actually I stole the background & concept Wayfarer posted all I added was some refinements.
I like to think we are building on each others ideas vs stealing.
There is a wide range of graphic / techie capability here - not everyone is able to manipulate / modify these designs.
If we can ever decide on a design we will likely need to find someone to produce a good clean, high quality digital file to provide to the flag maker or pay them to do it for us?

An additional thought I had after seeing these and reading some of the comments - wonder if anyone that doesn't want to or have the location for a Burgee would prefer a decent sized decal to place on a dock side window or vehicle with the same logo & burgee shape?

I did some digging and find the specs for both the "Red" and Gold colors used on the TF site. I juts don't know how to modify / manipulate the image to duplicate them - although the recent design red looks like a very good match.

"Red" (r, g, b, a) = 132, 14, 14, 1

The speced gold accent on the website is
Gold (r, g, b, a) = 189, 147, 71, 1

But it seems a little dull and could use some adjusting
r, g, b = 238, 186, 55 looks better

now if I could only figure out how to cut / pastE color swatches !!!

Got it will attach a color swatch as an example - can fine tune if necessary
This is the exact TF Maroon and a gold a little brighter than the website horizontal bar accents

When I ordered my flag I uploaded the art work and used it as is. However, one of the options was for them to clean it up for a small fee. From what I see I think we have enough artists to come up with a good final product. As for the mention of t-shirts, decals etc., once we have the logo the sky's the limit on available items.

On the RGB numbers, it's easy to edit. I will play and post what I come up with.

Here it is with the adjusted RGB values. Subtle difference in the red. You were correct on the first set of gold values, very dull. Almost brown. I used your second set. One caveat, everyone has a different computer. May appear different on each.

I'm just glad you're making it the color of my boat! That's very thoughtful of y'all.

No apologies needed here either. I was just glad you all liked the idea. Feel free to make changes. Apologies to Rochepoint for not getting the new TF anchor pasted onto the background in a reasonable amount of time, and thanks to firstbase for tackling that.

I'm laughing because I thought of that already! Read your comment about the SFB Bridge yesterday and was thinking that all of this fits your color scheme.

Here is another. Sort of played with the logo, cut the sharp edges off the serifs, made the logo smaller. Just playing.

I like the direction this is going. Each proposal seems a little better than the last. Keep the price reasonable and I'm in!

I like it a bit less serif-y.

A bit more fiddling. I kind of like having a bit of outline around the logo. Maybe not quite as thick and clumsy as I've done here, but I think it makes it pop a bit.

Looks good to me. I need a bit of color on the new boat.

I'm generally an outline guy as well. Makes things a little more 3D. Here is the same but in white.

I'm assuming the gold will fade or at least lighten over time. Think the black outlines work better.

I like the black outlines but think the logo needs to be bigger and closer to the staff end. If this were the final design, I would suggest letting a pennant company make the size adjustments. When having an outside sign made for my store, the sign maker was emphatic that what looked good on paper would look to small on the sign. Deferring to his experience, we went with the larger size letters. He of course was correct. Think it will be "larger is better" here also.

Agree w your fine tuning.
I'm guessing that placing it at the the center of the area might be right... IOW closer to the shaft so the area to the left is equal to the area on the right.
It's too early to think through where that is mathematically for a triangle no less a swallow tail... need more coffee.

Anyone know if longer, thinner ones snap less in a breeze? Or shapes, ratios in general?

Actually, while I like the black outline version, to be correct colors should not touch another color but white. We TFers do want to be correct. Don't we?

Apparently you don't remember much from the TF Rendezvous do you.

Agree with everyone. I am just throwing up the low-res artwork/options good or not so good so everyone can see and choose. Wayfarer the same I believe.

Have something else to take into account...I think.. Every online flag company I find has a different shape/length swallowtail. Our designs so far have a gold border. To keep price down we want it printed not embroidered. That means our uploaded art work has to match the swallowtail shape exactly in order to print the border. Not as easy as it may sound as I have tried. The online design programs they use are not full of functions and I have yet to see an "Add A Border" function.

One option is to place the art we are looking at in here inside a white border. The gold border we have would be inside the edges of the burgee an 1" or so. Still have to have our swallowtail match theirs in angle and length but somewhat easier. That way we just upload the art, center it however, and off we go. In playing around with it I found that building another white stripe between our gold border and the red field looked nice and matched the outside white border. Made the design pop a little.

Second option, if we want the final outside border to be gold, would be to find a company with a fabric that matches our gold exactly and let that be the unprinted border. I bet next to impossible.

Again, one of us can walk into a flag company and do whatever we want with no problem but would require more $$$. Just trying to keep the cost down and make it easy to purchase.

I hope all of that made sense! I may be wrong as I'm certainly no expert on this. Just know what I encountered when I made mine up.

I don't know but wonder if a gold nylon cut out / applied ob both sides is possible w this design. If so the accent might be the zig zag stitching around the anchor cut out. Also wonder if the same nylon could be used as the binding at edge... again w accent zig zag stitch.
I have seen good quality and good durability burgees done w this approach. Embroidery will likely be cost prohibitive but I dont have a sense for how durable printing would be.
Im sure a flag burgee maker can provide some answers / options

Greetings,
Mr. ps. raises an interesting question. Shape. "Less wear and tear, longer life." How about a round end?






Forget about the design on these examples , flip the burgee 90 degrees CCW so the end is: ) rather than < or >.


Would provide a very distinctive shape identifiable from a distance.
