I put my money where my mouth is, and gave it my best shot at integrating the flags without making it look like a monstrosity... But damn, it's still kinda ugly. Maybe you'll like.

Close to what I had in mind. Can you put the Croatian flag only in the HS2000 and the US flag only in the XD and still maintain the 3D effect? Just and idea. Not trying to be pushy.

Yes, but the issue becomes not being able to see any of the Croatian flag. And because "XD" and "HS2000" have such drastically different proportions, you can't make them the same size. Imagine a giant U.S. flag in the XD with a tiny, almost invisible Croatian flag in the HS2000, and you'll get what I mean. As for pushy, hey, I'm just doing this for fun, and you want a particular look. I'm happy to make changes all day long. So don't worry about pushy. You should see how pushy people get when they're PAYING me to do this sort of thing. So it's totally cool. Criticize away, and it will only get better. I only ask that you trust me about the "Business" of it. Sometimes it ends up better just getting the point across than trying to detail a specific message, is all.

Just for the sake of argument:

That's cool. Actually I kinda like the "Mall Ninja" version. Portrays a sense of strength and/or durability.

Check my edit to the last post. ^^^

And for the Mall Ninja one, I almost put rust around the edges to make it look cooler, but then I realized that some of our "Friends" over at Glock Talk would have had a field day with rust/finish jokes.

I feel the flag motif is a little busy. I much prefer the mono-tone look of your original, hexus. In fact...I would like that as an avatar.

This is a professional looking logo. Clean lines. Uncluttered. The flags, no offense, make the picture too "busy" in my opinion.

Looks good.

Nice job.

What, and do away with your "Mr. Clean" / "I will hurt you" image?
