Ok. Got it, thanks ;)

I wasn't aware of that point. Thanks to have insisted, I agree with you.
Let's say "no stars" then.

What about a "portion" of a 2D map like... well (googled image):
this one has the benefit of not delimitating any particular countries.
It may be zoomed in/out like we need to.

I think you got me wrong, because I badly expressed myself. I meant I'd
like a new logo, and not using the PGSQL INC one.
I added those requirements then:
>> I may suggest those requirements:

>> - PostgreSQL' blue may be the dominant color
>> - a few stars
So, we both agree on:
- an elephant (at least)
- PostgreSQL' blue may be the dominant color
Let's talk about the last point: map or not, or other "European"
Sorry again for the misunderstanding.
