Right now, math.stackexchange has the same look as every other beta SE 2.0 site. However, we will eventually need our own logo. Please post as answers below, your logo proposals for this site. One per answer please.

Not copyrighted
Should be vectorizable

Having it linked to a specific name proposal could make sense.

See suggestions for image hosting if you need someplace to put your idea.

  • $\begingroup$ I will leave my suggestions out, but when the time comes and we have picked a name, I would be willing to make the logo. I have some experience with these kind of things.(Of course we can vote on the actual logo) $\endgroup$ – BBischof Jul 28 '10 at 17:23

I suggested ForAllQThereExistsA.com. A decorative rendering of "∀Q∃A" would be appropriate.


So, I half-jokingly suggested coffeIntoTheorems.com, but a logo could look like this:

$\box \to \forall \varepsilon>0$

replacing $\box$ with a little coffee mug, and then put something 'mathy' that the coffee cup is being mapped into. (Maybe $\forall \varepsilon > 0$ is a bit too analysis-centric)


If we do wind up settling on MathExchange, some sort of bipartite graph next to/ underneath part of the name itself would be pretty canonical.


For the name planeAndSimple.com, a picture of the Fano plane might be suitable, if someone is willing to draw a vectorized one.

  • $\begingroup$ Actually, I think it could go well with a variety of names, but my logo idea did cause me to suggest that one. $\endgroup$ – Larry Wang Jul 28 '10 at 3:41
  • $\begingroup$ Wouldn't you rather imgur.com/4UYRf.png or imgur.com/LMx1J.png they are bigger badder projective planes. :D $\endgroup$ – BBischof Jul 28 '10 at 17:26
  • $\begingroup$ @BBischof: They are, and that's why I don't think they'd be as good for a logo. But feel free to post the picture separately and let people vote on it. $\endgroup$ – Larry Wang Jul 28 '10 at 19:26
  • $\begingroup$ I was mostly just trying to be funny. :) $\endgroup$ – BBischof Jul 28 '10 at 19:40

My MathOverflow logo is the Jacobi symbol: (math/flow).

So MathUnderflow should have the symbol: (flow/math).

The trick is to work out their higher reciprocity laws! Akhil?
