What iconic images should we include and is there a suitable Norfolk phrase we can adopt?

I ent zackly sure the way tuh Norridge..

I remember the 'Rosedale Rumble' but can't remember what the Snowdonia slogan was, should a theme be continued if there is one perhaps?

Just had a look at some Norfolk phrases and dialect,

Maybe 'Narfolk Nonicking' (or Narfok, Norfick, Norfolk),

the Narfok Pingle or any of the words from here that creates a smile and actually mean something relevant..

Speaking the Norfolk dialect: Basic Level

Did like 'Norfolking Around' - never used unfortunately, but still makes me smile when spoken aloud, genius.

I'll keep thinking.

P.S. what number national is this? 5th?

Bootiful.:D

I like that.

Any thoughts of images? NO sure how easy it is to do the Broads - unless we get one of those iconic sailing boats (what are they called?). We could maybe have a boat and a windmill in the background?

I suppose you have turkeys, boats, windmills and people with six fingers (OK I made that one up)

then we have bikes, beer and Vader

There must be some mix of the above that isn't too offensive

Not mine just found it on the web

Something like that with knobbly tyres. More Chicken Run/Great Escape imagery, perhaps escaping the Bernard Matthews factory.

Out of interest, any idea why you can't see the pic in Tapatalk. Had to get back to my computer to see it.

I was thinking something similar, sun shining on meandering road leading to windmill or just the sail of a windmill . At the start of the road a tent and a fully loaded Africa Twin with the caption below 'Bootiful'. All but the text in outline.

I think the boat you are referring to could be a gaff or a skiff but no idea why that entered my head, are you thinking one of these..

Aren't they called Wherries? But I think that is the distinctive sail shape so yes, that image, plus this:



And a turkey on a bike would be enough.

Somebody with more artistic skill than me could surely knock up something like this:

Like it chap :)

Just had a quick fiddle, moving on your design and the caption 'Bootiful', how about this?



Proper XRV font or logo on the front maybe..

There's is a chap called OB1 on the ATR forum who did the Safari sticker that i've still not seen yet, he may be up for giving it a go if you PM him through the ATR site..
