This is a work in progress

Next stage is the same logo inverted on the other side.
Over 400 rotations so far and about 60 to go.

A bit of background...
On the east coast of Oz (mostly Queensland & New South Wales), we play Rugby League.
Originally NSW was the dominant state and most Queensland players with any talent had to move there to make any money as the Broncos was the only Queensland side.
Now Queensland & NSW rivalry is probably on a par with the North & the South circa Civil War days

So someone came up with a playoff series we call "State of Origin" whereby the teams are selected on the basis of where they first started playing representative football rather than where they play now (for the money).

On State of Origin nights, the streets are empty.
The stakes are high and the play is tough.

Along the way the chant "QUEENSLANDER" became a battle cry in much the same way you guys might chant USA..USA... (Most of our cultural knowledge of the US comes from Homer)

Anyway, the guy that this is for is a dyed in the wool Queenslander whereas although I have lived in Queensland for about 30 years when it comes to State of Origin I am a Blues supporter (NSW).
I was tempted to stop at "QUEENS" and give it to him Smiley
