So why can't Stratovarius go on using it? The lily has also been used a lot throughout history, mainly in France, where it was quite meaningful, I mean, they are completely free to use it or not.

but why should they fight for that symbol? I know the lily is really meaningful to TT, he has said that many times, and it was also his idea to add it to the Strato logo (I think so) but there were many people using it before TT did.
yes, like Luca Turilli, they use that in the name before and many others coz is cool :D

Like I said I completely agree with you and I think it would be awesome if they kept the lily as it's associated with them.

I was just worried about there being a stink about it similiar to the one with the name.

The lily is really trendy. Even Britney Spears uses it and is also a Stratovarius and RR fan :D

like I said if they can use it then I am all for it.

But using britney spears doesn't help the case :lol:

britney spears=everything not metal

Just my opinion, it's not meant to offend

It’s hardly a symbol that screams stratovarius. It's a part of the logo but not something for anyone to claim.

The way they are designed is what gives them their trademarks, not just the fact that they are fleur de lis.

That's a good attitude to have, I would think it over objectively as well.

Something that I noticed. And this is just an idea....We see that RR uses the old lily from 97-04 on its logo, which is cool. However what about if the guys chose to use the ne lily from the black album instead. I tend to find that one really cool. Or perhaps design a new version to show the Stratovarius of today.
SHINE ON!

Keep the Lily.

S a tested is a porba hullék,
Akkor is van még remény,
Mert a lelked továbbra is él."

If there would be a petition, I'd vote for the old logo... You know, the "universal" one, without the lily.

That logo ain't that bad, it simply doesn't contain the smooth curves that reflect the music's classical influence. Oh, and the anarchy symbol doesn't have anything to do with Stratovarius...

While we wait if the fucking lily is on the logo or not, let's see if Matias post new shredding videos. Damn I REALLY want to hear Matias again. I used to call him, Michael Romeo Jr :)

I was thinking about the Stratovarius logo and lily again these days, will they keep it, what will they have decided to do with that? Will they change the logo?What do you think?

We will have a new logo yes.. and the fleur de lis will be, well, if not less prominent, it will be gone totally.
