Look at this:

Look at the logo on the top of the page: has anyone seen that before ?

(more than Queen materials I mean)

The crest looks rather similar, but the theme isn't all that unfamiliar. Look at it this way, there is no pheonix, which is the major trademark of the Queen crest. And, not to mention, there are two lions in the Queen crest, not one lion, or whatever it is, and a unicorn (I think it was).

By the way, Tchaikovsky's music is awesome!

I checked all my CDs and stuff, and the crest is still there. Whew, you had me worried. Things like ANATO and ADATR especially would look bad if it were stolen.

Marlboro has a similar logo too...

A lot of traditional english-kind logos have lions around something...

Sleeping Beauty... Ah... I want to see Swan Lake. Or Peter and the Wolf.

I wonder if people still do "Afternoon of the Faun". And I mean real productions, not cheesy community college things in theatres that hold like 15 people.. :/

Well it's probably inspired by the Queen-logo, and I'm sure Freddie would be honored since he was involved in the Royal Ballet.

i am going to take it as read that as your reply had no " ;-) " included then you were serious...
if so, then i fail to see how anyone with access to the www can make such a profoundly stupid statement as yours...

the "stolen coat of arms" that "freddie invented" - (as you put it) - has been in existence as a royal standard and used in Britain since about 1600 or so. so tell me how Freddie invented something (commonly) in use 350 yrs before he was born?

For the uninformed - Freddie adapted the British standard coat of arms using the bands' birthsigns...

"A crest is a component of an heraldic display, so called because it stands on top of a helmet, as the crest of a jay stands on the bird's head."


According to Wikipedia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crest_%28heraldry%29


It's a normal heraldic display which you can find in almost every european country for ages.

No, it's not something Queen made up.


What is it with Queen fans and thinking Queen made up everything, and thus every other use of this must have been stolen

It's true! You're just not a REAL fan, so you can't see it.
