ICOTS8 Logo

I like the ICOTS8 Logo.



The description of the logo says:

"The sum of three shifted distributions forms the shape of the three headed mountain Triglav (tri=three, glav=head), the highest mountain in Slovenia and a national pride and symbol of Slovenes. The solid colors correspond to the colors of the Slovenian flag, while the green background is the color of Ljubljana and its symbol: the green dragon.

The three distributions represent students, teachers and researchers, demonstrating that learning, teaching and discovering overlap and progress in harmony."

It is not a sum, it is a mixture of distributions!!

Yes, it is a mixture, but the overlying density sums the underlying densities.
