I think it's a given that Federation insiginia always look like they didn't
have time to design it. I mean, look at both Earth Federation (Globe
surrounded by 4 triangle), Earth Federation Force (Star over cresent moon),
Londo Bell (The L with a Bell), you know they didn't bother with the design.
Even the offshoot group that eventually got re-absorb back to EFF has boring
insiginia, AEUG and Kabala both uses the Earth-Moon-Colony insignia. The
lone exception is the fascistic Titan, with the stylized T with eagle's
head on one end and wing at the other, and a star in the center.

I actually don't mind Crossbone Vanguard's coat that much.

The Zeon/Neo Zeon (I) coat shows that they are serious about being the
Aristocratic rule, and actually spend some money on the design.

It has been a pet observation of mine that the good guys in Gundam always
have the less flashy uniform, the utilitarian looking ship, while the bad
guys gets elaborate uniform, eye catching ships.
