The logo of the hardcore punk band Black Flag is so powerful because of all its simplicity. The logo was designed by Raymond Pettibon, who also came up with the band name. 'If a white flag means surrender, a black flag represents anarchy.' Raymond Pettibon says. The band sprayed the simple, eye-catching logo everywhere on the walls in Los Angeles and caught the attention of both fans and the Los Angeles Police Department. A perfect example of the power of a good logo.
