Insignia

This image shows a flag, a coat of arms, a seal or some other official insignia. The use of such symbols is restricted in many countries. These restrictions are independent of the copyright status.

Public domain I, the copyright holder of this work, release this work into the public domain. This applies worldwide.
In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so:
I grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.

Public domain This work was created by a government unit (including state, county, and municipal government agencies) of the State of California and is subject to disclosure under the Public Records Act. It is a public record that was not created by an agency which state law has allowed to claim copyright and is therefore in the public domain in the United States.

County of Santa Clara v. CFAC held that the State of California cannot enforce a copyright in any record subject to the Public Records Act in the absence of another state statute giving it the authority to do so.
Note: Works that are considered "public records" but were not created by a state or municipal government agency may be copyrighted by their author; the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution prevents state law from overriding the author's right to copyright protection that is granted by federal law. For example, a state agency may post images online of the final appearance of a building under construction; while the images may be "public records", their creator (eg. architecture/construction firm) retains copyright rights to the image unless the contract with the agency says otherwise. See: Government-in-the-Sunshine Manual: To what extent does federal law preempt state law regarding public inspection of records?.

current23:32, 26 October 2012Thumbnail for version as of 23:32, 26 October 2012900 × 600 (365 KB)DevinCookUpdated plot. I had left out some grass between the first and second legs.
07:12, 21 October 2012Thumbnail for version as of 07:12, 21 October 2012900 × 600 (385 KB)DevinCookChanged the lettering again. The new lettering is designed to be both more readable and to look reminiscent of the defacto manufacturer appearance. Also, the letters were proportioned using 1/100 of the hoist as a base.
01:16, 10 September 2012Thumbnail for version as of 01:16, 10 September 2012900 × 600 (386 KB)DevinCookCleaned up the lettering a bit. The leg shaded was updated to better reflect the official rendering. The grass plot was off just a bit.
20:28, 23 August 2010Thumbnail for version as of 20:28, 23 August 2010900 × 600 (418 KB)DevinCookImproved shading of chest using black and white rendering found in old copies of the California Blue Book.

18:34, 24 December 2008Thumbnail for version as of 18:34, 24 December 2008900 × 600 (611 KB)DevinCookRecreated the red star. The spoke ratio was off very slightly in the last version.
