This was an international contest held from July 20 to August 27 2003, gathering 150 proposals. After the early proposal by Chuck Smith on October 12, 2002, the contest was first proposed on June 14, 2003 by Erik Moeller, who argued that the logo (adopted in January 2002 from the Logo suggestions) was unaesthetic, not international, and portrayed a text-only Wikipedia.

This logo just uses white instead of grey on the uncoloured pieces. Many have complained that the logo is too dark. It doesn't go well with the very white look of the english wiki site. Actually transparent would be the best way to do it, then it would go well any site.

The logo on the right has the Kallo blue instead of black (I did this really quiclky so it looks rather shoddy). Dgrant 20:55, 29 Sep 2003 (UTC)
