The flag of Gilneas

Is there a reason the flag for Gilneas has changed? What is it supposed to mean? Why does it looked airbrushed..?

Old Flag:

New Flag:

One of Liam's aunts got him Photoshop for Winterveil one year, and Genn just can't say no to him.

Just be glad that Tess removed the blur and charcoal filters before it was sent to the printers.

Honestly, I find the new flag to be an improvement. The other seems much more tribal, not very fitting for what Gilneas is being portrayed as currently.

Isnt Gilneas city a big circle? So maybe its a sylized picture of their city.

Well, theres Ferlion's theory that is supposed to be Gilneas City.

Alternatively, it should be noted to how similar the flag looks like a three pronged claw mark.
Or perhaps it doesn't mean anything.

And its more fitting because its somewhat more elegant. Gilneas is now a British like nation. I would say the old banner looks more barbaric. Keep in mind that the concept of Gilneas changed a lot since the old banner you put forth.

Old flag looks like a mirrored version of the Rahabim clan symbol from the Legacy of Kain game series (Soul Reaver 1 & 2 to be precise):

Flag: http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20051004110650/wowwiki/images/thumb/d/d1/Gineas.jpg/180px-Gineas.jpg

Rahabim symbol: http://www.thelostworlds.net/LoKSeries/Images/Symbols-SR1-Clan-Rahab.JPG

Could be one of the reasons IMO
