So iconically speaking the test suite [demarcates] Perl6 - but there can be
lots of different implementations (whatever *)  - [*] - here is a basic mock

"Perl6 = Test Suite" logo: (basic mock up)

Which could be incorporated into Camelia like: (mock up)

And Parrot could speak Rakudo (Camelia):

As you will see Camelia needs the skillz of a graphic designer to make sure
it still works even when rendered at 16x16 as a tiny favicon - but I think
you could visually bind the three things together: Perl6 test suite +
Rakudo/Camelia + Parrot.

Just some ideas ....
