I *really* like  Jiří's balloon design [1] - it mimics the Fedora logo 
without really being overtly *the* logo (that's why I didn't put them in 
my little Flying High mock, Ify - they look kind of weird tilted but 
they just don't fit if I spin it right-side up either. And it looks 
*too* Fedora for every balloon to have the logo). The balloons also 
don't look overtly plain then.

Jiří, can you make the source artwork (SVG?) available for [1]? I want 
to play around with your balloon design and try to make a new mockup for 
Flying High!
