This is a funny coincidence (nothing more, most likely <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"> ), but as I was driving around today, I noticed the back of a ProNorth Transport Truck... and the 'o' in North sported a compass VERY similar to the Avalon Logo! <P>ProNorth is a Northern Ontario Trucking company and I'm currently trying to find a picture of their logo, but the similarity is VERY eerie. <P>Just thought I'd point this out, as SOMEONE (other then me) may find it entertaining

Avalon logo is a compass. It's not, in and of itself, original.<P>Now was the compass turned 20 degrees counter-clockwise and backgrounded with leaves? Then we've got a coincidence... or more. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif">

There was no background with leaves, but the compass was turned 20 degrees counterclockwise, and the colours were the same (though you're having to take my word on it for now, as I've not been able to get a picture of it)<P>The compass design was practically the same too (the north and south a bit more elongated on the ProNorth one). <P>It's just something I saw and was immediately reminded of Avalon. I'm sure it's nothing more then coincidence. But I thought Josh might find it amusing (as it's almost an obscure Canadian Reference in the logo... well, an obscure Ontario reference atleast)<P>------------------

This is the best I could find. Most sites just say the name only <IMG SRC="http://cwm.ragesofsanity.com/kao/msroom/gomen.gif"> <P>

Well the Seattle Mariners have this logo:

It's exactly like Avalon's just replace the maple leaf theme with a baseball theme.<p>[This message has been edited by Kaoru (edited 04-26-2001).]

I think the Mariners had that logo long before Avalon was around.<P>Just a little commentary from one currently attending college in Seattle.<P>Which reminds me. Josh, if you give me Mr. Page's full name and address, I will summarily run over and deliver klutz-fu upon his loser-ass.
