    They were loosely modelled on the W3C HTML validation logo, which
    is comparable, in some ways, in what it is trying to do. See:

    where the Unicode site uses the W3C NTML logo to indicate our own
    dedication to validating our pages with the W3C HTML validator.

    Well, it is a "Unicode Savvy" logo, not a "Unicode Snazzy" logo. ;-)

    And one of the design goals was to make it small (but recognizable),
    so that it wouldn't burden the loading of pages that might want
    to use it. The snazzier you make it, the more you make people
    pay (in time and bytes) for loading the snazz.
