I was looking at the Chateau next to where I live and I realised there was a message in the building ( for a picture check out my projects thread - permie for Pennies in France https://permies.com/t/31583/projects/Permie-Pennies-France ) . On the roof was a pineapple- the symbol of hospitality .Directly underneath the pineapple above the door was a five pointed star with a point pointing down . I believe this to be a masonic sign so the building is saying, in code, brother masons welcome here . If it was done when the building was built its from about 1750s
I wondered if we could/ should have a permie sign! _ for those of us with out the space for a hugel in the front garden
Any thoughts.

It could be a hammer and garden snips with a basket full of produce. It could look like the old Soviet flag.

I was on my phone when I posted that. I just meant that without having to start a new word of mouth campaign, it would probably work best to base something on the three ethics. I didn't really expect that you'd run the logo down to a print shop or anything .

Here's something I slammed together that almost incorporates the three ethics if you squint. I don't know if this is down the road of what you were thinking or not. I'm not certain why the stick figures are ascending to heaven .
