​Sorry I missed your reply.

However I am still puzzled (pun intended), the extension 'logo' is not what
you have on the header. I understand the analogy but why not just have the
single puzzle as is.

I think visual identity is important and introducing many new logos, will
add somewhat confusion to the users. As you might know, many users rely on
icons to use software. Changing that icon confuse them (example, removing
Internet Explorer logo from the desktop).
