Of course, they can have a different name and in the case of the 'old'
Wiktionary logo, also different text. But the general style of the
logo should be the same for all language versions. This is not the
case with the two Wiktionary logos, they are distinctively different.
If you have a project that should be recognized all over the world, by
anyone, without any confusion you shouldn't use two logos.

Let's assume for example that the German Wikipedia would use a
different logo than the English Wikipedia. That would be very
confusing for everyone. A logo is the first thing people remember and
notice about a website, and they use it to recognize it from other
