Early in the 20th Century, archaeologists excavated the site of the Assyrian city of Ashur in Northern Iraq and found the palace of Tukulti-Ninurta II, who ruled from 890BC to 884BC.

Among the treasures unearthed was a particular wall plaque depicting the Assyrian god Ashur. Ashur is shown shooting his bow from a winged sun-disc among rain clouds.

It is this depiction of the god Ashur that also features on the modern Assyrian flag.  

We've taken this design, but instead of a bow and arrow, we give Ashur a guitar, a traditional drum or a trumpet. Click the thumbnails below to see our logo designs in detail.
