The 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.

Huh. 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.

If we're voting for logos, I'm for the 5-associahedron, with second choice the 4-permutahedron!

Thx niles, that 5-associahedron has an interesting dual(!)
