Nationalism, please take your crest and attach, i have tape on my desk (staples don't laminate) your images. Anything you didn't bring you can draw. Images that represent you and what you are proud of. What flag would you wave if you marched in a parade? Underneath or within, try to come up with a mantra or slogan, something short, that sums up you and your images. Not a long quote, super brief. Then, on the back, explain why these images and words represent you. How do they work together or contradict one another? Do you think they are similar to or different from any other person's personal crest? The more that you put on it, the easier the write up is. Conversely, the less you put on it, the harder.
