Eight-point star

flag of Novial
image by António Martins, 24 May 2003

As newly informed by Rodríguez (pers. comm.), the emblem of Novial is something like two superimposed quadrangles with inward curve edges of a light reddish hue, one of them symmetrical and standing on a side and the other, standing on a point, with the upper point clearly extended; the overlapping area is golden yellow. This emblem was usually set on a white background.

Incorrect report

The article [rod97] reports a seven pointed star on a «dark» background. The author of this source, Rodríguez, informed me later that this vague description was wrong.

Maybe the heptagon mentioned in [ial91a] is the source for this report?

In Panorama in interlingua 2/1991: p.16 “Ab le archivo” [ial91a] black and white symbols of constructed languages from «our archive» (probably the image sources as for [rod97]?), which I quote: «Novial, 1928» (dates are probably language publishing, not symbol creation, judging from 1887 for Esperanto): Quite different from the other reported design: a regular starry heptagon (seven pointed star), with every third point colinear, ponting rightwards, outlined and superimposed on a similar, denser filled star (with common tip points but visible along the concave overlap spaces).
