I’ve tentatively decided to use a stylized copyleft logo for /c/libre_culture, which you can see here:
I went with something simple so it’s still recognizable even if it’s small. I chose a green one because Libre culture is also partly an environmentalist ideology, as it promotes repairing instead of replacing. It’s also a similar colour to the Open Source Initiative logo, as the two ideologies are related and overlap. Plus, the green logo provides good contrast with almost any theme, whereas a darker colour would be harder to see in dark mode, and a lighter colour would be harder to see in light mode.
