I have already applied for tradsemarks ont he name and logos you see here - but I am wondering if I need to have any symbol to note that on the logo you do. I do not see that on other logos on your site - so I leave that to you.
A peace sign is made by connecting the center of a circle to the 4:30 and 7:30 marks on a clock if you think of it that way - or by bisecting the lower two quadrants in half exactly - or by marking the 1/8th segment at 7:30 and 4:30 - and I would like it to be as precise as possible as the versions you see here that I mocked up are (noticeably) not.
A soccer/football pitch includes a center circle that is easily converted to a peace sign with the addition of the two more lines (since the center circle is already cut in half top to bottom). So I want the logo to reflect that this is a peace sign on the center of a soccer pitch - hence the vertical lines extending above and below the circle.
Target audience is global - passionate about football - interested in tough but fair play - supportive of efforts to use football and our shared interests and passions to build bridges between our differences - etc. This is modern thinking in some parts of the world. There is an educational component.
The logo should be able to be used on apparel, soccer gear, etc. - but also as a bumper sticker - and it should lead people to the web site where there will be content, causes, community, and campaigns that promote activism, education, and peace.
Thank you. I love what you are doing and appreciate the input.
