As E. has already presented some designs worth consider (with a head start 
;-), I share a proof sheet of my first triskelion design.
To avoid misunderstandings: I'm not ignoring the general preference for the 
trefoil -- I had already the first triskele drafts going, and have to get them 
out of my head and out of the way, to do some trefoil designs.

This first batch needs some explanation:
It is a transparent proof sheet, you're meant to load (e.g. in GIMP), and then 
proof against various backdrops.

The first row give you an idea of the construction principles.
In the second column I couldn't fail to notice the outline of this pasley 
form, I then colored blue. This form appears in many contexts all around the 
world, be it celtic, gothic, japanese, korean, or chinese art ...
Further I happened to see some illustrations about quarks constituting hadrons 
-- that side-tracked my imagination and produced the second row.
Rows 3 to 6 contain a systematic exploration of these spinning forms from row 
2 and some triskele variations. (You see, I'm an engineer ;-)

By choosing a white background the 3rd column will become equivalent to the 
2nd if the gradient would have been set to white.

There are some imperfections.
I suggest, you choose your favorite(s) from this batch and give their 
row/column coordinate. I'll then clean them up.

This is NOT THE VOTE FOR THE NEW LOGO, just a preference within this batch.

The next batch will be the triskele designs, I originally imagined, then -- 
with my brain dumped and free again -- the trefoil designs will be worked 

Enjoy (hopefully ;-),
