Shalman Imperial Dependency of Salonique - Salonique 2009

Post by philly_boy on Fri Jun 12, 2009 2:00 am



Salonique is the Shalman Commonwealth's (Host of the December '08 Simlympics) dependency on the planet Earth. It is situated north of Greece, south of FYR Macedonia and Bulgaria and west of the Kenoshan Federation. Salonique has a continuous history of about 2,000 years, since it was founded by King Casander of Macedon. It became a Shalman dependency after the Balkan Wars. Salonique has a population of about 2 million inhabitants.




The Salonique Simlympic Committee believes that the perfect spot for the opening ceremonies would be 'King Alexander the Great' stadium, which was rebuilt during the reign of Roman Emperor Galerius, along with his palace in the city. The Committee has proposed the renovation of the Stadium and plans are already being made:


(Please note that the stadium is very early in it's development Smile Its not the final version Smile )

Teaser of what to expect ;D



Watch this thread, more will follow Wink

Love the logo. It's very unique.

Nice stadium too, although, like what peter said, it kinda resemble the panathinaiko (sorry if I spelled it wrongly) stadium but with added stuff (roof, entrance).

New logo posted Very Happy

Description and explanation:
The logo was inspired by the Greek letter Theta (, ) which is the first letter in the Greek word for 'Salonique', which is Thessaloniki.
