http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7667/geometric-name-of-sage-logo-existence-of-dual/?answer=11623#post-id-11623The sage logo is a hand-drawn SVG graphic by sirio puchet. You can interpret it as some sort of graph, but there is no meaning behind it. The main purpose is to have something visual to associate with sage that is not used by similar products.Sun, 05 Sep 2010 09:32:17 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7667/geometric-name-of-sage-logo-existence-of-dual/?answer=11623#post-id-11623Comment by niles for <p>The sage logo is a hand-drawn SVG graphic by sirio puchet.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7667/geometric-name-of-sage-logo-existence-of-dual/?comment=22703#post-id-22703Huh. I guess it's not an icosahedron, you're right... but it would be nice to have something real. What about the 4-permutahedron? That looks nice. Though I do love this graphic.Sun, 05 Sep 2010 15:59:06 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/7667/geometric-name-of-sage-logo-existence-of-dual/?comment=22703#post-id-22703Comment by ccanonc for <p>The sage logo is a hand-drawn SVG graphic by sirio puchet.
