We changed the coloring on the flagpole tips to silver, similar to the axe and pike. We also added a slight shade to the white outlines of both the poles and tips...not quite so abrupt as the white. We also adjusted the poles so they don't curve in at the top. We chose not to try the pike idea, thinking that that's too many pikes floating about. We also lightened the blues in the flags, although compression for posting to the web makes it less obvious. Keep in mind that what you're seeing is a mockup. The colors on the actual drumhead will be rich and vibrant.
