[Design-team] Fedora Linux Day - Santiago, Chile

I have emailed for the approved copy of the Fedora Symbol, specifically describing what I intend to do with it.  

The thing I am pretty sure I had done to get that unauthorized version was to Google image search for "fedora logo" which produces a first page showing that version on three sites:  www.windows-hq.com has it as a .png file and dcala.wordpress.com/ has the same as a .jpg file in the July 30, 2009 post.  The third is musinpice.blogspot.com where it appears in the October 12, 2005 post along side of a substantially forward slanted version that the blogger had drawn himself.

I'll do that (email).  I will see if I can retrace my steps about where the other one came from that I grabbed for this mockup.  With one more tutorial, I should know enough inkscape to re-do this whole thing as a scalable vector drawing.  I will research the precise aspect ratio and field placement of the Chilean Flag too.  Thanks for the comments everybody.  I am still learning how to swim and appreciate all the help I can get.
