Name that logo: the answers
Last week we set you a task relating to our forthcoming Top 20 logos issue: name the logo from its nickname. Here are the answers.

1. The meatball
A. The original (and current) NASA logo
2. The ferret and dartboard
A. The old (pre-DRU) British Railways logo
3. The crows' feet
A. British Rail
4. The worm (two possible answers)
NASA (1974-92), CN (Canadian National railways)
5. The arrows of indecision
A. British Rail again
6. The bird splat
A. Mont Blanc
