For a novel I'm writing I'm looking for a symbol, akin to hammer and sickle, that would represent a socialist republic created in Florida plus a but of Alabama and surrounding states. The hammer in the communist symbol represents industrial workers, while the sickle represents peasants so I don't know if at the beginning of the XX century they would mean much in that area. What do you think could be the right symbol? A gun and a scythe? Any help will be appreciated and obviously acknowledged in the novel when published.
Update: To make the question more general, how do in general revolutionary countries adapt symbols to their peculiarities, given that the hammer and sickle are a symbol of the Russian revolution and have as origin the two worker classes (factory and farm) that joined to take the revolution to vistory?
Update+1: I finally adapted the West Florida flag adding an Angolan machete in maroon (which accounts for the cimarrón origin of many of the natives). Check it out here Thanks a lot for the contributions, it will duly be acknowledged in the book.
