International logo contest/Final logo variants/Stevertigo

historical pages 2003 Wikipedia international logo contest (logo comments, Stevertigo)
This was an international contest held from July 20 to August 27 2003, gathering 150 proposals. After the early proposal by Chuck Smith on October 12, 2002, the contest was first proposed on June 14, 2003 by Erik Moeller, who argued that the logo (adopted in January 2002 from the Logo suggestions) was unaesthetic, not international, and portrayed a text-only Wikipedia.

Below are colorizations of the Pallusmagnus Nohat logo.
