I'd thought of adding a trident, but changing the roundel to a lozenge never occurred to me.
That could be an awesome idea. To tell the truth, those roundels always bothered me. They
seemed to clash with the ship's elegant lines, and they also looked like great big targets
saying, "Aim here!"
The question may be how the central color of the lozenge should be handled. If I leave it
round, this might not be enough of a difference to keep the RAF's barristers happy
(surely we all remember the famous Avro Barrister
heavy bomber, mainstay of Britain's
strategic bombing campaign in 1943), but if I stretch it out and get the proportions wrong,
the insignia could end up looking like a three-colored paramecium.
What do you think of a Union Jack, possibly enclosed in a white outline, done as a lozenge?
The neat thing about that is that we shouldn't have to worry about infringing on some
unknown party's trademark because national flags cannot, to the best of my knowledge,
be trademarked. The way this year's been going so far, I wouldn't be surprised if there
turned out to be a Trident Red White 'N Blue Throat Lozenge
company out there...
