Late last week, Vice President Mike Pence detailed the creation of America's new Space Force, which is expected to become the sixth branch of the US Military and help ensure 'American dominance in space' by the year 2020 (or so it is planned). Meanwhile, the White House has put forward six new possible Space Force logo designs for Americans to vote on.

Unsatisfied with what they believed was a lack of creativity in the logo designs, Twitter users took to Paint and Photoshop to come up with their own.

The only appropriate Space Force logo design is this one by the legendary Milton Glaser… pic.twitter.com/1PtBPH0Jku— Adam Best (@adamcbest) August 10, 2018
Hi @realDonaldTrump I heard you are looking for logos for your new SPACE FORCE! As a professional graphic designer, I would like to offer you my logo design idea, free of charge! It's the least I can do to give back. pic.twitter.com/oe522hVdzc— Rob Sheridan (@rob_sheridan) August 9, 2018
Many of the designs seemed focused on the prospective military branch's expense.

Even the Russian Embassy in Washington got in on the fun, posting a Russian Space Forces logo as if to point out that Russia got its own Space Forces, along with the accompanying logo, first. The Russian Space Forces are a subdivision of the Russian Aerospace Forces charged with ensuring Russia's air sovereignty, promoting aerospace early warning and operating the country's military satellites, including the GLONASS network.
