I am sorry to say that this logo violates the Wikimedia Visual
identity guidelines [1].

On a personal note, I am saddened to see that we don't seem to come up
with any grand ideas, a little fresh and different, for new logos that
are needed. As much as I like the idea behind the logo, I find it
disheartening that people keep adapting the same logos again and
again. For an incubator, this is even sadder.

In any case, before a  new logo is used on any of the Wikimedia
projects/websites, it should be approved by the board of the Wikimedia
