Obviously not one state should be the background for a mulititude of states.. but here's the other thing, where I live, it looks nothing like what's being depicted on the logo. And we are a very large chunk of states (as are a lot of the other regiments), so a potential for customization of the overall theme of the group logo, I thought, would have made it more likely our diverse group of members would be willing to put a reference to the Southwest Regiment on their armor.I don't think any state should have its border as a background of our icon. I also don't think each state should have its own section, the logo should be a unifying thing that incorporates aspects of each into it but not divided into regions. I did try to incorporate aspects from the flags of each state into the logo.
That's my two cents, at least. But again, like Wanderer said, we need a variety of input in to this and not to settle on a single design before getting a lot of different ideas out to the table.
