Rebranding the Orange Order

Just in time for the 12th of July, the Orange Order has undergone a rebranding.

Despite their Seventeenth Century tendencies, this does not refer to a literal branding of the members, fun though that might be.

Instead, in an attempt to convince the public that the Orange Order is a fresh, vibrant, fun religious group for the Twenty-first century, they've gone and made themselves a brand new logo.

Here it is:
Ah, isn't it lovely? It looks like something off a seeds catalogue or a tampons pack. All flowers and Times font and tradition. No mention of Catholic hating, civil disturbance, burning down neighbourhoods, intimidating the neighbours, or generally being antediluvian morons.

I prefer the logo offered by the truly splendid Uncyclopedia instead:

It might remind the worshipful glorious master sheepbotherers that the next time you get lost and find yourself marching through a neighbourhood you're not wanted in, all you have to do is just phone home!

Happy marching season, everybody!
