Furry symbol??
« on: February 14, 2008, 01:44:41 PM »
WEll.. at one point i was wondering if there was some sort of recognized furry symbol. Turns out there is one, but from what ive seen its not widely recognized. They came up with it on Yiffstar(bad site>.>...not for children)

Its called a Phi-paw. It hashte greek letter Phi ( "F" sound) as the footpad of a fox's paw. Then i made a personal variation of it, here:

but this is just a personal version. what do all of the furs here think? :D

This letter-thing looks like some sort of wire trap... not so lucky comparison...

Yeah... well i can make it wider, thicker. I more like the idea that they were interlocked, but i couldnt think of a way to do that.

or maybe i could just put the paw on top :3

I'm not for or against the symbol as I don't need something to represent me. It does look good though. ((On another note, this really should've been started in the Art section. But I fixed that. Hopefully all who were participating in this see the Moved Topic note.))

Thank you^^,  

I just thought it would be nice to have some sort of symbolism for furs to know each other by, without other non furs noticing anything different. Well, thats what i thought before. then i found the origional Phi-paw, which was made for the same reason. i thought that it just looked funny, though >.<

If anyone is interested, ive been talking to an embroidery and screen printing company locally. they can definately make shirts and stuff, if this symbol is a good idea ^^.

I prefer the claw-mark decal on my avatar's shirt... but that's just me.
