We already have an African name...Let's draw a BAOBAB tree as a logo for Joomla!

Hi,
My PS and computer drawing skills suck, but here is the idea:
Joomla! already has an African name, so lets make a simple icon of another African symbol - the BAOBAB tree
http://images.google.com/images?q=baoba ... a=N&tab=wi

"The baobab tree serves as a meeting place for many villages to discuss community matters, relate the news of the day, or tell stories. It is also considered to be an object of worship by the people of the African savannahs. Baobabs are a protected tree in South Africa and is said to be one of the "World Trees", or Tree of Life by many of the cultures on the African continent"

Just exactly like with us, and with the OpenSourceMatters. Here, the "villagers"-developers called up a community meeting and decided to start a new project -Joomla!

http://www.baobab.net/aboutcs.htm
"The Baobab tree is a symbol of endurance, conservation, creativity, ingenuity and dialogue."
"Wisdom is like the trunk of a Baobab tree. No one person's arms can encompass it."  -> Particularly important
And we are strong as a Baobab tree as a community!

"The Baobab tree is a symbol of endurance, conservation, creativity, ingenuity and dialogue"

If someone can help me out by submitting their "Baobab tree" project it would be super... I tried to come up with something, but it is ridiculous.. :D

The simple stylized baobab tree combined with a word Joomla! will create a nice flow to the name. I see brown and green used for the tree...

Very nice,
but I would simplify the design a little and add some color.
It might be difficult, but I was thinking about creating a foood like icon, logo:
