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

Do not use this attached one yet because it is a rough draft that is not using the officially approved fedora logo (that I have requested from the source).  This is also a pixel based drawing that would look jagged if we scale it up to make a poster.  It is for discussion purposes.  When I get the official "f" symbol I will produce a vector version of this (if you like it) and that version could be used small or scaled up into a poster size and can have your announcement words put on it somewhere.  I think I will try to make the area with the "f" to be more similar in size to the white star on your country's flag.  

I am curious if you know whether there is a law in Chile that could get you in trouble with local authorities for this type of alteration to the flag.

Sorry for not replying earlier Charles. Indeed, your first graphic was a

violation of the logo usage guidelines and the second version is better

from this point of view.

But you don't have to go with a white background for the logo, that

square can come in any color (which will still leave the logo readable,

by providing enough contrast). For example you can make it light blue,

as the secondary color used in the logo.

PS: i suspect the original requester, Jonathan, is not subscribed to the

list and may not follow our conversation, so added him in CC
