Obama and the Democrats decided to forego the traditional political convention logo containing the old, outdated stars and stripes. No American symbolism here, just Obama symbolism.
No stars. No stripes. Nothing pertaining to the United States. Instead, we have a variation of the Barack Obama campaign logo above. If you'll look closely, the tallest figure in the middle represents Barack Obama, and those around him portrayed as his loving followers.
The symbolism says everything. Think about it.
