If the deadline is this Saturday(07/29) then I won't be able to make all the ideas I have but I can give you these 2 for now

These are .jpeg and .png files but I also have the .ai files If you ever need to give it to a real graphic designer for merch, changing the color, better quality or what not
(currently aiming for a graphic design major so I'm using the school's computer lab workshop time to do this X3)

If you need a different file format or more compressed just say so and I'll try to get it for you (preferably before the semester ends - 08/10 though I'm sure I can find a way if need be)

The Golden Empire
https://www.dropbox.com/s/alet7ayf9zxk0r2/GoldenEmpire-Flag.jpg?dl=0
Image
-holding a wing because the golden empire some reason always find themselves killing and or carrying winged stuff (fire nation alates, termite alates, moths, their own alates(course not killing them))
-wreath for the terrarium
-3 stars on one side for the 3 original queens
-5 stars on the other side for the 5 additional queens we know are in there

Spring Cleaners
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7h3z35a0q52v1pa/SpringCleanersShield.png?dl=0
Image
-for the spring tails a spring tail
-bit of yellow to show off where they first reside
-unsaturated blue for dampness and contrast with the other crest I was planning on doing but didn't have enough time (well unless the deadline isn't this Saturday)

Also since I fiddled with my previous post for almost an hour trying to figure out how to place an image into here I'll just just place how I directly linked or embedded the image here from dropbox (not too sure how for other hosting sites but you can still check it out)

Okay since this forum is using BBcode (like most forums) and not html, brackets ([] these) are needed to code stuff here
(make sure BBcode isn't disabled in the option list when creating a reply post or else the brackets won't work in creating commands)
the specific one we need for images is [img] at the start of the address and [/img] to end it and let BBcode know when to stop reading for the pic adress.
there's a shortcut to this in the bar above making a post (the little picture thing or the 9th one in from the right)

Now we need to get the image address of the picture you want:
When you get to dropbox click on the image you want to embed
hover over the upper right hand corner and a bar should appear
go to the link/sharing button, the first one the right (the 3 circles connected by a bigger one), and click it
click share (top option)
NOT copy link, if you do it will give you the Url link for dropbox's page for the image and look short like this https://db.tt/e3DhNpIrx5 and because it doesn't state the type of file it is in in the url it's pretty much useless for what we're trying to do
Once you've clicked share it would probably say "No link created yet", click on it that to create one
the image full address should be automatically copied to your clipboard and should look something like this https://www.dropbox.com/s/alet7ayf9zxk0r2/GoldenEmpire-Flag.jpg?dl=0

what were interested in is the ?dl=0 at the end of the address
that causes dropboxes page of the image to be linked, what we're after is just the picture itself
replace that bit at the end with ?raw=1
you should have the adress looking sort of like this https://www.dropbox.com/s/alet7ayf9zxk0r2/GoldenEmpire-Flag.jpg?raw=1

now uses that image address and place it in between the image bracket command like this
[img]https://www.dropbox.com/s/alet7ayf9zxk0r2/GoldenEmpire-Flag.jpg?raw=1[/img]

And your Done!! :D
when you post/go to preview you should see your picture front and center
hope this helps some people^^

Just trying my luck using my poor photoshop skills


Northern Black Knights
Image
Key points:
Color: Black because ants are black
Helmet: Knight helmet because they are called Knights
Ant in the middle: Image of black ant to make it more related
Combined: Black knights (ants)

Southern Black Knights
Image
Key Points:
Same as above!

Fire Nation
Image
Key points:
Color: Black and red to magnify the fierceness of the fire ants
Fire circle: Fierceness of ants amd it's unity symbolized as a circle (infinite, no beginning no end)
Ant: Because they are ants
Combined: Fire Ants (supposed to be a nation tho)

Golden Empire
Image
Key Points:
Color: Brown, Gold to magnify the elegance of golden empire
Walls like background: Symbolizing Walls, which you usually see in empires
Design: To magnify the elegance
Combined: Golden Empire
New ant keeper
How long: 1 month
Keeping: formica

Last minute flag idea based off my other ones since I'm not creative 8-)

Image

It's still for the Golden Empire, my favorite ant colony ;)

Changed the 3 yellow stripes to 8 so that they actually represent how many queens are in the Golden Empire
