IMHO, your M-x is the best icon among other suggestions.  It has no
drawbacks mentioned for other icons (has no duplicate word "Emacs"
with the program title, etc.)

This icon has good connotations: M-x symbolizes the state of Emacs
waiting for a command from the user, like the Emacs icon is waiting
from the user to click on it.  And the location of M-x on the icon
corresponds to the real location of M-x at the bottom of the Emacs
frame in the minibuffer that makes this icon the quintessence of the
Emacs display.

I have only one question with this icon.  The gnu head on the icon is
looking to the right, whereas the gnu on the original picture (on the
splash screen) is looking to the left.  Such difference causes a
discomforting feeling of the icon image being mistakenly mirrored.
Could you turn its head to the same direction?
