Debian’s first logo

Debian's first logo (circa 1994)

This was drawn by Etienne Suvasa of the Free Software Foundation in 1994 and predates the swirl by at least a few years. The idea was Richard Stallman’s—it’s a baby GNU holding a blanket and sucking its thumb a la Linus from the Peanuts (get it?).
