The Cremello Horse is a player designed mount that was a gift to players who visited the PAX expo in early 2011. As a result it is often referred to as the “Pax-mount”. Later on it was also given out as a lottery and competition reward. The gift codes only worked for the US-servers, so European players were unable to obtain it in those days. After the US/EU-server merger, European players finally got access to the mount codes, and I was one of the lucky winners of a Twitter contest and won one! However, on my server I have seen no one else riding this mount (though I know there is at least one other), so I guess for former EU-servers this is still a rare mount.
My initial reaction when I first saw a screenshot of the mount was that its horse tack resembles the flag of the United States. Of course there are no actual stars and stripes, and the original player design had very different colours, but still the red, white and blue theme is very prominent. Now I am not a US-citizen, but the idea inspired me enough to match the horse with a stars and stripes outfit. I had a lot of fun designing it, because even though it is a bit tongue in cheek it is still a decent outfit for a captain!
