    Any idea why US Palm copied their logo from the Deutsches Afrikakorps? A tribute? Or just expired copyright? And shouldn’t they sell a morale patch with the original insignia too?

    ^^^^^^ You’re an idiot “m5”

    So do you see the same thing in Noveske’s logo? Or CSM’s?

    (Recoloured & re-sized for comparison. There was quite a lot of variation in the exact shape of the Afrika Korps’ insignia, and the Palm in the logo of US Palm is well within this, e.g. http://www.jocks.co.za/images/afrika01.jpg, google for more.)

    I wonder whether US Palm would stand a chance in a trade mark infringement case, if Deutsches Afrikakorps was a competing business. Which it isn’t, of course – it was the legendary German expeditionary force in Libya and Tunis, lead by Erwin Rommel.

    And, Mr. Jim Tailor, could you please mind your manners, and refrain from name calling. My question is perfectly valid, considering the similarity of the logo and the insignia.

    There’s not much point in kicking a dead horse, but…

    Noveske’s logo looks like a simple Celtic or Viking cross (originally Pagan usage, later Christian) which predate the German national cross insignia – which, btw, is not a “Nazi symbol”, and is still used currently – by 900 or so. And CSM’s logo seems like a generic pirate ‘skull and bones’ rather than the SS Totenkopf.

    And it’s not just the looks that matter, but the etymology and context, hence my original question. For example, the original insignia of the 45th Infantry Division of the US Army was based on a Native American symbol that had absolutely nothing to do with the Hakenkreuz used by the Third Reich.
