How about a tardigrade for a mascot?
What is a tardigrade you ask? Also known as water bears, they are adorable,
and also perhaps the most indestructable creatures known to man.

To put my two cents in.

The dragonfly is already used by DragonFly BSD and Opera Dragonfly.

Since today is world penguin day [1] some journals reported about Tux,
which is a good reminder to keep our discussion boiling with the
reference how Linux found its mascot [2]. To summarize the discussion
I created a pad [3]. Anything to add?

Hello all,

additional to the unique branding of LibreOffice today, we want to
introduce an alternative to TDF's trademarked logo/icon elements that can
be used by the community with minimal restrictions: a mascot.

The idea is similar to "Duke" from Java (
duke/pages/Home), SuSE's chameleon "Geeko", Mozilla has a
lizard/godzilla/tyrannosaurus, Linux' "Tux" is famous, KDE is going with
the dragon "Konqi" ( and Krita has
"Kiki" (

The first step would be to find some metaphors that enables designs to
be creative. Something like Freedom, Documents, Openness etc. Ideas for the
realization are of course also welcome. The mascot could be an animal like
a (grumpy old) cat to refer to the seven lives of LibreOffice or something
more symbolic.

Based on your input we would later start the actual design task, and
ideally have a few options where the community can choose the best.
