Yes it is more helpful but it is hard to see the cross in the legend. Also I'm not sure if a cross fits the map it looks slightly out of place to me so maybe another symbol would be better but I can't think of what. Maybe just a star or asterisk.

Ha, maybe not, but you'll find something.

Yes, Andy, those are not bad ideas, thanks for that tracking to the thought process.
I haven't anything in mind yet, but am trying to think of the something that would be very pertinent to the PM inhabitants.

Could you do a smaller / simplified image like the icon you borrowed from Port Moseby's flag?

What about this...does this work?
I wanted something that was representative of Port Moresby and industry...so the curved icon is the image of the federal parliament and the slanted roof piece is iconic for industry - side by side.
Black and white was the best colour to use for contrast on the map...it simply doesn't work well in purple or other colours.
