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 ;-),



It is certainly not me who will choose or works on a new logo, but I have been following the discussion remotely.
I do not personally like the tri-something shape, as it looks pretty much like the logo of a sect or of a strange cult.

Take a look at the tree icon that can be found in the masalla icon theme. In my opinion it looks better and does not have any religious meaning.
Maybe an agreement with the author of the masalla icon theme could be done?
