No disrespect is intended here but a spang is a spang is a spang. You can't 
really demand that everyone make them from just the pattern you prefer. 
There is no rule or law specifying the exact pattern for a spang. The whole 
purpose of Beltane is to celebrate spring and to have fun. Requiring that 
others use only your pattern is less than generous and not in the spirit of 
the game we strive so hard to play with chivalry and honor. As long as they 
are roughly the same size and shape what does it matter?
