(WASHINGTONPOST) — Sen. Ted Cruz is the first major contender to announce his candidacy for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, so his every move is being scrutinized, including his new logo. What does it look like? It depends on who you ask.
Steven Greydanus, a film critic for National Catholic Register, notes a critique of Cruz’s new logo.

This designer thinks they’re missing the likely influence: To me it looks like a Pentecost-y church logo. (I’m sure I’ve seen very similar church logos.)
Which means, yeah, it looks like a burning flag.
