Awsome use of negative space. Love the depth and feel of the logo!

I kinda like it. Might be a little too “swastika”-ie.

On second thought, it doesn’t really seem to have any overt connections to Taiwan, could be about anything.

Brilliant mark. No explanation needed

It really plays tricks with your eyes. Aesthetically though, it seems rather too geometric and lacks personality.

This logo is freaking my eyes out.

It’s very plain and boring though.

Not sure if it’s intentional, but the shapes aren’t perfect, which causes more “warblyness” when viewing. Particularly the (black) arrowheads.

I like the concept, but I think it could be improved upon if more distinctive shapes were used.

I agree that the use of negative space is excellent. However I also agree that it resembles a swastika and that it does really say “Taiwan” – unless they have become Nazis.

Mwah. I agree with Kevin and Jim: looks like a swastika and it lacks personality. By the way, how do you recycle a country …

Brilliant indeed.

Yeah..looks more of a Swastik but ..nice

Really looks like a swastika… Awful!

stupid faggots shut up

They use this in Taiwan already. I think it’s really good actually. Everything once again becoming one in the centre.

As for the swastika thing, you people know that the Buddist symbol is similar to the swastika, but the same angle as this recycle symbol right?

It looks A LOT like a swastika not just a bit. Like something took from an Orwell book. but then maybe that’s exactly what Taiwan is heading for

Muito bom!

The Swastika has been and continues to be a symbol of Light in many cultures – in spite of the Nazi attempt to coopt it. The more of us that we keep aware of the swastika as a symbol of Light, the less power the Nazi connection can have.

I, for one, am not letting it be corrupted any more than I have to !

Buddhist swastika is left-facing, swastikas in other cultures are mostly left-facing, sometimes they use both forms for a balance. But the logo is obviously right-facing, same as nazi swastika. It would be easy just to turn the arrows clockwise, as in any other recycling symbol. Then there would be no questions.
