Yes. I have been thinking quite a while about which licence would be
appropriate. Even though there are some images under GNU GPL (e.g. the
Dynamic Duo), in my opinion the GPL does not really make sense
for images. Frederic Couchet pointed me to the Free Art licence
http://artlibre.org/licence/lalgb.html which I decided to apply. The
final version of "Europa and the GNU" is at


If you want exactly the same layout as on the FSFE t-shirts you need
to get the PostScript logo (the licensing terms and official location
of which I do not know) and uncomment the relevant lines in the LaTeX

There are also some pixel graphics that can be used as desktop
backgrounds, plus a small button that could be used to link to FSF
Europe. The button includes the FSFE logo. I could not find licensing
terms for it. If someone points me to them I will either add them or,
if the licence does not permit this use, replace the logo by some
standard font.

Best wishes,
