As this winds down I want to thank everyone for all the comments. I especially enjoyed the irony vs. symbolism discussion. Lets just say I see both sides. I felt by the legitimate definition of irony that it exists alongside the symbolism present.
As for the jolly roger and some folks feeling it was better gone, I understand your concerns. Le me say I liked it for two reasons. One it is a blatant and easily recognizable symbol, one that used to cause stark terror but has been diminished somewhat by the whole fun pirate that people think of when they see Johnny Depp doing his impression of Keith Richards. 150-300 years ago it was the last thing many people saw before they were brutally murdered. The second reason for the skull & swords though was very simple; I liked how it reinforced the lines of the overall composition. I felt I needed something to not only continue and emphasize the oval but I also felt it balanced out the star up above made the design "sit" less heavily in the space.
Once again, thank you everyone!
