This is my entry for Marissa Meyer’s “The Lunar Chronicles” Lunar Insignia contest. I wanted a simple design with some symbolic elements. After reading the Lunar History, I decided that the base of the insignia should be a lunar eclipse to signify that the Lunars are coming out from being eclipsed by Earthen society and are now their own republic. I created a language for the Lunars based on molecular DNA because that is what sets them apart from Earthens. The motto at the bottom of the insignia reads “Eclipsed No More”.
