Why are you asking me to give you such examples? I certainly did not
say there were any such images in violation of trademark guidelines.
The images I had in mind don't contain any marks. While not containing
any marks something like the four foundation cloverleaf still does get
rightfully associated with the Fedora Project.

Really, I just asked a simple question. Does the Fedora Board
representing the Fedora Project have the wherewithal to declare a
particular image (I assumed an image not containing any Red Hat owned
marks) a freely licensed Fedora Project logo.
