Who knows what the stars mean?

2 posts in this topic

Ok so I was at first very curious as too the meaning of the stars in the 1st marines insignia. Question is who knows what they mean? Check below for answers.

The stars stand for the Southern Cross. A constelation that can be seen in the southern hemisphere. The 1st Marines fought under this constelation at Guadalcanal. It is also a popular symbolic logo in this part of the world.

Yes, I was aware of that. The Southern Cross or Crux also appears on the flags for Australia, Brazil, New Zealand, Paupa New Guinea, and Samoa.

    • I'm sorry, but we have a zero tolerance policy for bigotry and the remarks you made. You have also been banned numerous times in the past for spamming. You are responsible for your actions when you are in the server, and when you say "Won't happen again" I don't really believe you considering your ban history. This request is denied.
    • http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/heroes20/megabundles/   So Heroes of the Storm 2.0 Released earlier this month on the 25th, And for i believe the next week or so, anyone who logs in gets enough gems for a 20 hero bundle more or less for free, The link above shows off the four bundles and the heroes in each, It's actually a pretty amazing deal considering each bundle is 100 Gems, if you decide to play choose carefully though, Once you buy one of the bundles the remaining 3 become unbuyable.
