People will always have different associations for logos and that doesn't

quite unique.

+1 for Lucas' paper plane. :-D

Personally, the "folded corner" doesn't trigger any such association
in my mind. I had to read that in the list to realize that's what it
was supposed to be.

At least the paper plane looks clearly like what it is. And,IMHO,
there weren't *so many* paper plane logos. Plus LibO's is likely to be
the most-recognized worldwide.

The important thing would be for LibO's paper plane to have its own
originality? Plus I feel the concept has a lot of flexibility and

Subjective thing. 0.2 cents. ;-)

I also like the paper plane logo. Most people will naturally assume a 
paper product and I would think that this is a universal impression. We 
can still create a unique style of logo, in this case, I favour the 
trailing tail on the paper plane.

If we wanted to we could also move on to a form of animated gif-type 
logo, the print version would be the static logo.

There are so many more forms of directions and styles that we could 
develop for different use of LibO suite. The home version could have 
more of the snappy and vibrant paper plane logo, while the 
business/corporate paper plane logo could be more of a stiffer/staid logo.

The page with the folded corner just doesn't seem to have promise of 
many more options that could offer the change to add a kind of 
"coolness" and "snappy" feel to it.

Just my added thoughts.


About the copyrights, maybe I could give a call or a message to laposte
to ask them about the paper plane logo.

It would be something less to care about, even if in other countries
there might be other paper plane logos.

What do you think ?
