You can be forgiven for your confusion, as there were multiple
postings by  Florence in this thread with only slightly differing

I think the relevant bit is in the fullest of those postings as follows:

"It was a logo, taggued public domain. Request received for a take down.
Legal analysis on it, and recommandation to indeed remove the logo."

Note take down request is not normal routine. It does need consulting
legal eagles and acting without haste.
