There were many other great suggestions focusing around the theme of renewal and also some linking to our new logo with tree metaphors.  Some ideas included the name Trinity such…

For something over two years, we have been seeking to identify a logo which will help us develop an integrated image for our publicity and other official HTC publications, giving them a badge of authenticity and authority.
