Species: Golden Orb-Weaver Spider
About this flag
Golden Orb-Weaver Spider
Element 1: Emblem
Aesthetics - striped legs
The Golden Orb spider has striped legs specialised for weaving. Their contrast of dark brown/black and green/yellow allows warning and repelling of potential predators to which their venom might be of little danger.
Element 2: Pattern
Aesthetics - strong webs
The web of a large Australian spider is so strong it could be used for skin grafts and bulletproof clothing. The golden orb-weaving spider's silk could be up to 100 times tougher than synthetic products used today.
