In Germany, we have a famous children's TV show called "L÷wenzahn". It
starts with a time lapse sequence of a dandelion flower breaking its
way through the asphalt. This is what I've always associated with the
MediaWiki logo, technology (brackets) being merely the basis for the
growth of something wild and beautiful which transcends it.

However, in that symbolism, I would prefer the wildness to be even
more visible, with perhaps a different perspective on the flower, or
some visible breakthrough. When I saw the flower on Commons, I was
impressed by how much energy it radiates. It strikes me as an
appropriate symbol of strength and maturity, hence also the transition
from the old slogan "ideas want to be free" to "power for your ideas".
