Pretty Pictures

Japan ran a contest to select the new logo for their Ministry of Defense. You'd think there'd be samurai swords and ninjas, cherry blossoms and rising suns, right?

Nope. Instead, they selected some new-age tree-hugging-ish soda pop logo. Absolutely sickening.

Go check it out over at Who Sucks, along with twenty two other logos from countries around the world. See who gets it right and who gets it oh-so-wrong. Don't forget to log your vote for favorite in the poll at the bottom of the post.

Thanks to Tinkerty Tonk for the pointer.

The Brits (and all their Commonwealth buddies) have it right. A crown, an eagle, and crossed swords. The anchor is a nice touch, since it was the Royal Navy that allowed Britain to dominate the world.

I thought the Japanese logo was stupid, too, until I figured out that it was a stylized representation of an atomic bomb in the first microsecond of detonation. Heh.

Nothing says "We'll kick your ass if we need to" like a big ole green-and-blue World Hug.

I do believe all of the ideas you have offered on your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.
