X marks the spot, and when I was a kid, we would often play "Treasure Map", where we had to find the spot marked by the X and bring back the flag.
The first one to bring it back won a prize.
Of course we also played "Steal the Flag", and Flag Football.
In all those games, the flag represented a prize or a goal. As I grew, I learned the meaning of my nation's flag, and it came to represent so much more to me than just a prize.
It stood for an idea, an ideal, a nation. It was the flag that my forefathers had fought for and fought under, the symbol of the principles which they held true.
So when I set out to design the logo for the next round, a flag was an obvious theme. But since our blog represents so many people from so many different places, it was hard to choose just one flag, so I squeezed in as many as I could fit.
So, it is with great pride that I unveil the logo for ABC Wednesday Round 11.
You can copy it from here, or within a few days, if I know Roger, it will be available in different sizes on the blog under "Badges"
And as a side note, if I did something wrong when I uploaded it, you will see a box with a red X in it.
After all, ...
X marks the spot.
What spot does X mark in your life today?
Let us know in your ABC Wednesday post, and link it below.
