New FLAG logo-opinions

Postby ShadowKnight006 » Mar 07, 2009 9:55 pm

So what does everyone think of the new FLAG logo from the end of Season 1?

Image

I myself am torn. I just think it should be a horse's head in there, not an eagle. So far we have gone from a horse, to a snake, to an eagle.
Looking for TKR!

The chess piece worked better, because it was a "knight."

I'm torn to. The eagle symbolizes patriotism in the US, but the chess piece was really cool in itself. Plus, I don't think it was used for anything else.

By the way, when was FFLAG symbolized by a snake? Was that on Team Knight Rider?

I think it looks great! Hopefully we'll see more of it!

I think what they mean is the Cobra insignia that was seen around Knight Industries... Like the one that switched with Ford's Cobra insignia on the back of KITT when he changed to Attack Mode in the first ep. Personally, and I know this is kinda off topic, but I liked the Corba for K.I.

Ah, yes. The same one that is on NBC's Knight Rider website. Technically I guess that's for Knight Research and not FFLAG. Details, details. :D

I can't remember (which sucks) but what was the original logo for FLAG? I thought the chess piece was only used for Knight Industries.

- You know I saw this logo and I am fairly sure I know where their inspiration derived from, another popular 80s property that has seen new life. That's right check this little gem out below.

Let's see...

Eagle? - Check
Star? - Check
Shield Framing? - Check

That's right! GI JOE: The Rise of Cobra.

I like the new F.L.A.G. logo and even better than the GI JOE one. It is infinately more impressive to me than the spin on the usual (and bland) Presidential seal. I say kudos to the design team on this one.

The knight chess piece was used in the original series for FFLAG.

I am not 100% sure, but if I remember correctly the Knight chess piece was Knight Industries, FLAG always had the eagle. But I have to check that to be certain.

The Knight logo was tied to the Knight Foundation and Knight Industries. FLAG didn't really posses a logo - even the plaque in front of the HQ was just lettering.

I like the new logo. The Eagle's head has the same sort of flaming that the Knight's head has, kinda...You almost can imagine the horse head in it's place...

FLAG never used the Eagle or presidentail logo until TKR. The Original FLAG used the Knight Chess Piece as seen on the semi. You can verify it by looking at Junk Yard Dog and seeing the Foundation for Law and Governement sign with the chess piece. Knight Industries on the other hand used the knight's head like on KITTs wheel but it had wings added behind the head. You can see this logo several times in the pilot especially when you see the semi at the end. It can also be seen on the technitions coveralls in Goliath

Pretty generic looking logo. Would have been better if they used the Knight chess piece. You know, Wilton Knight and all that stuff.

- Actually the Knight Industrires knight's head on the gullwing wheel of K.I.T.T. differed greatly from the knight head and plume on the first semi in the pilot and on the technitions jackets.

ex812 is correct that the knight head was used as part of the signage for F.L.A.G. in Junk Yard Dog and you could debate whether it was an actual "logo" or not for F.L.A.G. itself. Also note that in Junk Yard Dog the facility where K.I.T.T. is rebuilt is not at the usual mansion where gold and black flags also showed the chess piece as viewed in Goliath Returns.

Image

Additionally the very first "knight head" design to be seen in Knight Rider was on Michael's blue track jacket in the pilot (while he's talking to Wilton after jogging to get back in shape after his surgery) then the original KI semi logo is revealed on the back of his jacket. You can find examples of these logos in The Knight Rider Companion along with others under the logo guide section of the book.

I personally really like the new logo. I love the angles of the shield and the contrasting shades that comprise the eagle. I also really like the lettering.

Overall, this was a hit for me - a hint of the original presidential seal logo, but different enough to stand out and modernize. The only thing that I would like to see is a colored version - this one is grayscale because it's a background watermark. I see a lot of gradients in there - there are a lot of different zones that could work well for color. Then again, color could really really screw it up, so maybe it's better to leave well enough alone.

I think that this logo is fitting - that way, if Knight Industries ever makes a return, there will be a separate logo for that entity.

I'd imagine that the Knight's head such as what was on the steering wheel was the logo for Knight Industries and the chess piece the logo for the Knight Foundation, which IIRC, funded F.L.A.G.
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

If you speak up in support and favour of this logo, are you flying the "FLAG flag" flag?

I think the Knight Industries 'Chess' logo should stay and the new 'Eagle' is an update but it's too 'futuristic' as none other 'Real' organisations use a futuristic logo so really I think it should stay the same as a tribute to the original.

I was hopefull that i was able to see FLAG logo on the last episode for a good and perfect ending to a
partly-ruined show. i was sad to see that the flag logo has changed from a knight to a eagle. i thought
they will make it up for ruining the show with a cobra badge(making the word knight less meaningless than before).
i was dissapointed to see sarah checking old FLAG data with a new logo.
It is not logical.
they had the best chance possible to redeem themself but they didn't.
