Interesting... How did you come up with that design?

After trying to come up with approaches that directly relate to the 4
freedoms I ultimately had to give in to abstraction.
There just wasn't enough room for that complexity in an iconic symbol.

Despite the needed simplicity I tried to come up with something new that
deals with self-similarity and the process of emergence, where one part
originates from another, but retains the roots of its origin.

I was immediately impressed with the logo. I do hope it is widely adopted.

It inspired me to create a derivative graphic emphasizing the virtuous cycle of using Free Software in the context of the power of copyleft. (done using Inkscape, the image is also released as CC-0 (public domain declaration).
