ZION and 2012 are close enough that it is probably unavoidable, but I object just on pure ugliness. That logo is so unreadable that it could be interpreted to say almost anything. Not every language reads left to right, so those four digits could be correctly read in several different ways. Even the colors are ugly! Is Susan G. Komen their only sponsor? What is with the pastel pink and blue for Olympics?

Now and again I find myself very understanding of Arab attitudes to the realities of the world, and other times, like this for instance, I find myself flabbergasted by some nations capacity to see a dagger in a bunch of flowers.
Many East Asian scripts can be written horizontally or vertically. The Chinese, Japanese and Korean scripts can be oriented in either direction, as they consist mainly of disconnected syllabic units, each occupying a square block of space. On the other hand the traditional Mongolian script and its offshoots (like Manchu) are written vertically.
Horizontal writing is known in Chinese as hengpai (Chinese: 橫排; pinyin: héngpái; literally "horizontal alignment"), in Japanese as yokogaki (横書き, "horizontal writing", also yokogumi, 横組み), and in Korean as garosseugi (가로쓰기) or hoengseo (횡서; 橫書).
Vertical writing is known respectively as shupai (simplified Chinese: 竖排; traditional Chinese: 竪排; pinyin: shùpái; literally "vertical alignment"), tategaki (縦書き, "vertical writing", also tategumi, 縦組み), or serosseugi (세로쓰기) or jongseo (종서; 縱書).
Traditionally, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean are written vertically in columns going from top to bottom and ordered from right to left, with each new column starting to the left of the preceding one.

In the matrix they said that Zion is the last place left on earth
The logo also says 2012

If you have to re-arrange the letters, then your deliberately
trying to make something it isn't.
Read left to right and top line first, as is the norm in the Roman Alphabet
your deliberately trying to make something it isn't.

I have to agree that is the worst logo I have ever seen, the color scheme is like the 80's fashion, when people worse highlighter color clothes ok, just thought of this, light blue = baby boy, Light pink = baby girl, some kind of new beginning represented in the color, yea i know that's a long shot. peace
