The motto I picked can be found below. I´m open for suggestions
Some idea for quotations:

Transire suum pectus mundoque potiri - To overcome one's human limitations and become master of the universe
Ubi bene, ibi patria - Where you feel good, there is your home
Velle est posse - To be willing is to be able

As I said, it´s as sloppy as possible, I made it just to give an idea of uniting Mustache and the tools that can shape it and make it look good. I´ve already seen we have fellows with some skills on design programs, how about refining my idea, giving colors and more elaborated symbols? Since you´re already here why not taking a look at the other posts? They´re all in portuguese, but among them some paintings or photographs you may find nice. Thanks for visiting.

Nem o google pode me dar alguma informação convincente sobre esse negócio de mustache. Meu pobre inglês palpitou sobre a bemvindade de idéias, opiniões, e cores...
O que simboliza(simboliza?) essa tal de mustache's flag?

Darwin disse...

Ah, talvez já seja manjado... as coisas aparentam ter mais valor quando são conseguidas depois de dificuldades. Pelo menos pra mim, a internet joga os valores das coisas lá embaixo. As músicas parecem muito mais legais quando tocam nas rádios, e não quando eu dou um duplo clique num ícone. Essas figuras mitológicas, num livro velho duma biblioteca, seriam mais atraentes. E as pinturas então? ...bah..eu odeio esse monitor aqui na minha frente, me sinto um prisioneiro.
O bom da internet é que nos dá a chance de conhecer pessoas que nunca conheciríamos sem ela.
Ah, era melhor ter mandado e-mail, mas agora já foi...

Hum, motto for a nation's flag... How about: Nações. Mais têm servido para separar as pessoas do que para as unir.
