For what it's worth, I think the design including the text is
great. :-)

If we do want to keep it, though, maybe we should see if we can get
localized text out of the translations for the "Unite" wording on the
website.  Then we could include translations in the graphic, in
different fonts, instead of just English text.

Alternately, we could just drop it so that by excluding one language
or another, we don't disappoint anyone unnecessarily.
