@Mike ... thank you for your quick response!

Sure it looks very familiar ... but this is on purpose ... maybe 
just changing the colors could make it different and will remove 
these trademark/copyright issues ... but I have to stop here, 
because, I am not a designer ;)

More important was the text I have written:

'For me, the new Flex logo should send a promising sign to all those
companies who have lost money, and, to all Flex developers who got
fired during the last couple of weeks. "Stability over Philosophy" should
be the credo of this new logo, and, the message of the new Apache Flex
logo should be clear and simple:

"Flex is still Flex, and, now even better managed by Apache"'

When moving dramatically far away from the original logo design could 
lead to the impression that Apache Flex is something completely different
in the hands of Apache ... and managers and investor, who might have no 
idea about the internals of Flex and just see the logo, might hesitate to draw
their wallets.

As mentioned before "Flex will not survive without those investors".

I can post that logo the way you have it. This is trademark/copyright issues.
