It was me who vetoed against `http://fsfeurope.org/images/gnulogo.jpg'.

My personal opinion about this logo: This gnu looks unfriendly,
creating distance to the viewer. Although this logo displays a gnu,
its style is IMHO more appropriate for a random dot.com company than
for a hacker organization. I cannot identify with it.

As the Head of Office I will have to deal with the FSFE logo all the
time, so I vetoed against this one.
