A Logo Proposal for Smalltalk

These days, any programming language needs a nice logo if it’s to be cool. Look at the above banner graphic. We have cool languages like (clockwise from the top) Racket, Kotlin, Julia, Haxe, Elixir, Dart, Crystal, Ceylon, and Rust. Other examples are:

Unfortunately, Smalltalk doesn’t have a cool logo. The closest thing we have is an unofficial hot air balloon image:
