I'm going to pull the usual and ask you to read the list archives, where
this has been beaten to death. Red Hat has a trademark of Shadowan, of a
man wearing a fedora hat.  Red Hat has to defend that trademark in order
to continue to be allowed to own the trademark.  That's trademark law.

Maybe a different name would be better, but it's a little late for that.

I still like Luya's logo, it has such subtlety to it ... but I bet it
doesn't make it past the designers.

Barring that, the element looking embossed or like a sapphire with a
wrought iron border and a little ring on the top to hook onto the
collar.  Like an alchemist's element.
