     Since there has been discussion in the legislation introduction thread about a new flag, I think that we should open a discussion on it here. What do my colleagues think? I personally like the large variation of Judicial Overlord Dibble's third suggestion, due to the starkness of the design.

Lieutenant Governor should be Grand Moff.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

The flag is nice and evil, but we need some sort of villainous motto for it.

Cherish liberty. Destroy the Jedi.

Three things:

1. Villains don't tend to tout liberty, so I'm not sure it's villainous for our motto to contain "cherish liberty".
2. While I'm all for destroying the Jedi, I don't think the Imperial Dominion should overly reflect a singular evil philosophy. Destroying the Jedi is primarily a Sith goal. I think we need a motto that reflects a more generic evil sentiment.
3. The Jedi are technically a religion, albeit a highly misguided one, and as such I don't think having such a motto on our flag would be constitutional - you know, separation of church and state and whatnot.

Having made a trip to Wookieepedia, I think that it ought to be the following:

Governor: Emperor
Lt. Governor: Shadow Hand
Speaker: Grand Moff
Assemblyman: Moff

We've already done the names and passed the amendment, so we're not likely to change them again any time soon.

Yeah, well, I'm not in the Southeast anyway. I'm doing this as a way to avoid doing the stuff I have to do.

Maybe, but again we're getting stuck on Star Wars. As the founder of the Atlasian Association for the Advancement of Evil People, I want the region to reflect a wide variety of types of evil.

Also, Vader is a bit problematic. Certainly he committed great atrocities in the name of the Dark Side of the Force, and that is to be commended, but we mustn't forget that he was weak. He betrayed and killed his master, not out of greed and desire to take his power for himself as any proper evil would do, but out of compassion! He turned to good at the end! Can you really say that he is a proper role model for the next generation which will inevitably betray us and seize power from us?

I'm thinking about them. I'll present a few candidates when I have some I'm happy with.

Here's a few possibles.

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” - Shakespeare  (I particularly like this one)
“Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torment of man” - Friedrich Nietzsche
“Our greatest evil flows from ourselves” - Jean-Jacques Rousseau
"There is no good or evil: only power and those too weak to seek it." - J. K. Rowling

Also, we could just go with "Greed, Power, Corruption" or something of that nature.

You have to remember that "Evil People" per se do not view themselves as such.  I like the Rowling quote the best.

How about "Wealth, Power, Happiness"?  With wealth being ill-gotten, power being total control, and happiness being the end-product of sadism?  Or maybe something Latin.

     I agree with my colleague, Darth Yelnoc. One of the things that appealed to me about Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith is that Palpatine argues for the Dark Side while rejecting the notion of it being evil. We should do the same & officially deny an absolute notion of evil.

Only those who can't truly embrace evil don't recognize themselves as such. They are weak.

I like that one as well, but it lets add just 3 more teaspoons of evil, translate it into Latin.

I like it! I'll make a few versions of the proposed flags with this later.

Here is a version I made. I think the letters would look better in red, but for an uknown reason, MS paint would only allow black, white and gray.

Here's a couple with red text. One with Daedric runes for the letters, and one with just a different font.
