    I don’t understand why people say that a flag design looks like a logo, as if that’s a bad thing. To me, a flag is a country’s “logo”.

    From the Oxford English Dictionary (online edition)
    Logo: a graphic representation or symbol of a company name, trademark, abbreviation, etc
    Flag: a piece of cloth, esp bunting, often attached to a pole or staff, decorated with a design and used as an emblem, symbol, or standard

    They’re both symbols – one to represent a company, the other a country.

    The PEAK Engineering and Design Company should sue the Red Peak Flag “Designer” for plagiarism. LOL.

      Well, now that we have all seen that logo, it should eliminate the Red Peak-although it’s been eliminated anyway, de facto, as I have heard that it’s too late and the referendum material is not going to be redone. It would make us ridiculous, anyway.

  3. Toby knew all about the Peak Engineering logo before he wrote that article. He was engaged in a conversation on twitter about it the day before he wrote the article. He choose to ignore it hoping it would go away

  4. Any flag could be a logo and many logos could be a flag.

    I agree and in general the criticism of the silver fern in that regard is rather unjustified. Taking the Canadian example, the maple leaf, as it stands in the flag, is ubiquitous in company logos. Air Canada being the prime example.

    No one is bothered by that.

    I do take the flag/logo point, though. To me, a logo is a company sign or symbol like the ones that cars have, The word flag-unqualified-would make me think of a country’s flag.But log, unqualified, would make me think of a sign or symbol like the MacDonalds’ arches.
