    I banged this out in Photoshop today for your consideration as a Coat of Arms. The Thunderbird was hand drawn by me in Photoshop so there are no legal concerns. I do not have a SVG of it, though I do have the original very high resolution .psd (and can obviously convert to any other raster format, at least).

    Thank you College of Arms for the time you have put into this tremendous project!

    Well, we don't have a thunderbird yet, so we'll have to steal this one.
    I don't know if we'll be able to do the blue triangle. Could we either fill that with black or void it so the white shows through?
    If the red and yellow show also, I'd raise the thunderbird so that didn't happen.

    Maybe stick it on this shape?

    Ditto Frank's comments precisely.

    It's not "standard heraldic style", but it's quite evocative of native American style which I assume is the point, and it's in a good silhouette style, so good there. Very nicely done! :-D

    Thank you. That is indeed the point.

    That sounds great to me. In the original, the blue bit is voided, I just put some blue behind it in Photoshop. The blue is not very important, just me playing around, though I would like some in the design somewhere, perhaps a border?
    I can provide my original high-res .pdf of the thunderbird for whatever conversion process is necessary.

    If I know what format it has to be in, perhaps I can have a go at it...

    Thanks! I'll stick that in the database so the artists can find it.

    Now, I just need to void the white background.

    I am still a little new to SVGs. Let me try to do one without the background.
