    For me they are too busy. It is hard to see the name. I go right to scuba, but I am sure there are more scuba shops in AZ.

    I agree, too busy.

    If I was you - see those four little holder things? They're going round the safety ring?
    I'd consider putting a snippet of the flags in each of those, and lose the flags on either side compeltely.

    I feel this will give the design a more round feel, while not losing your meaning.

    Agreed - a good idea if I ever heard one - OP - your design is far to busy - sorry and it doesn't work in B/W - an important test me thinks unless the company is called "ALVA VI SCUBA"

    Agree..too busy. Also the main text is hard to read. Consider a white stroke on the lettering to get it to pop.

    Got to say I agree with the others, it's too hard to read the 'Salva Vida'. I do like the feel of it though :)

    I thought about something like that, but I can't seems to get flags incorporated into such a small space with out confusing the identity of the flags.....

    Perhaps white text with a black outline would look better in B/W?

    They are way too busy and the font choice is incorrect.

    Keep it simple, that is the best advice I can give. Most people make the mistake by trying to put too much into the logo and they end up looking dated, unprofessional and like a dog's breakfast.

    Work out what the logo is trying to say then go from there.

    I've had a rough go at implementing the flag idea.
    See what you think.
