New US defense logo Controversy: Is it a symbolization of the Islamic crescent? Or a threat to Obama Government? (Part 2)

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Let’s continue our trial to uncover the subliminal elements that are behind the Us defense logo according to the critics.

As mentioned in the previous part of this article, the US defense logo was designed by the TMP Government, a marketing company that manages the websites for numerous Governmental departments. Although this particular design has caught the eyes of critics, but despite of the criticisms and controversies, Collins (The designer of the US defense logo) denied about all the claims that TMP Government had in mind when they produced the governmental branding.

"I wouldn't buy the argument that it's an evolution of the Obama identity," Collins said. "There are similarities but I don't see the genesis in the Obama logo."


The US defense logo caught into controversies because of many reasons, one of them is the circular red, white and blue sign, which has also been compared to the communist hammer and sickle symbol, first appeared on the Missile Defense Agency’s website in the autumn.


The hammer and sickle is a part of communist symbolism and its usage indicates an association with Communism, a Communist party, or a Communist state. It features a hammer and a sickle overlapping each other. The two tools are symbols of the industrial proletariat and the peasantry; placing them together symbolizes the unity between industrial and agricultural workers. This emblem was made during the Bolshevik Revolution.


The hammer and sickle symbol is best known for having been incorporated into the red flag of the Soviet Union, along with the Red Star. It has also been used in other flags and emblems. The symbol is currently outlawed in several countries as a symbol of communism and Soviet occupations.

But Richard Lehner, a spokesman for the Missile Defense Agency, dismissed the comparisons. "It's ridiculous," he told Fox News. "It isn't a new logo to replace the official logo. It's a logo developed for recruiting materials and for our public website. Also, it was used prior to the 2008 election and it has no link to any political campaign."

Brian Collins, chairman and chief creative officer at COLLINS, a New York-based design and innovation firm, said the new logo used the "same visual language" as that of the Obama campaign, complete with two circles and three stripes.

"The Obama logo is filled with messages of hope, it's about looking toward an optimistic future," he said. "They've taken those exact elements and they've made them more technical."

The debate about Controversial US defense logo which is being compared to Islamic crescent is endless, and it is really hard to make a conclusion whether the US defense logo unconsciously sends a message that caught the sight of the critics, or there is really a hidden message behind the US defense logo about Obama’s secret evolution!!!

@ Simon;

There are so many things that exist, and are part of our daily lives about which we are totally unaware of. This is why we should raise questions about every single “weirdness” that we encounter in our daily lives so we can share our thoughts with each other and uncover the obscure mysteries of different subjects. Nice to hear that you liked my article, hope you will get back and read the latest writings.
