I'm not the webmaster, Pavel is.

It was Pavel's choice to use the brick-red. A lot of people like it, I
think. It's the same image, he has just coloured it differently.

It is a *little* different, in that it doesn't have the right wing (on the
left side) detached. That's because I used the new version of the graphic,
that IBPhoenix had done for us. Though some error, the artist forgot to
detach the wing. But that vectored graphic scales down a lot better than
the Markus Soell version does. No other reason.

Otherwise, it's the same as the (official) Markus Soell one.

>Wouldn't it be time to set things straight once and for all?

Some time it should be set straight. Perhaps the Foundation could fund an
artist to fix up the graphic for us.
