In https://code.wildfiregames.com/D4484 I plan to make the icons for entities required. Almost all entities already have icons, except for the civ Gaia. It currently isn't used in the game, but it would be nice to nevertheless have a nice icon for it, such that we can use it for other things as well.

So my request is a nice icon, similar to the other civs emblems for Gaia.

Meaning of Her Name

Though some Greek gods and goddesses have names that scholars later established, Gaia’s name dates back to before Greek civilization. Her name in other languages includes Doric and Attic, but all of the names mean earth. Mycenean Greeks called her Ma-Ka or Ma-Go, both of which mean Mother Gaia.

The Sun Cross

Symbol of the Sun, power, and earth

The sun cross is a very old symbol that dates back to before the Bronze Age. It is comprised of a circle with a cross in the interior. This symbol first represented the wheel and the power it brought to society. Later, the circle represented the sun and the interior a cross. It is a symbol of power that was taken on by ancient kings as the sun was considered the symbol of the highest power.

 

The other is Wheel.

The wheel is identical to other solar wheels and represents the solar calendar, with points marking the position of the sun at the equinoxes and Solstices. The solar cross and Celtic cross motifs are derived from this symbol. The most recognizable symbol of modern Druidry is the Tree of Life, with branches and roots entwined. It is a motif common in Celtic art from pagan times, and adopted as well for Christian use, often identical with the biblical tree of life.

the wheel also has a Hebrew sense of the Hebrew world.

Two Hebrew words that are commonly translated as “land,” “earth,” or “world,” are erets and tevel. 

 

although it also represents the sun and the seasons.

It is an important symbol for Catholics, Hindus and Celts.
