Thank @ianbjacobs for starting this issue.

Let me first copy and paste the original email I've sent to the public payment wg list.
----------

I'm Eiji, a developer advocate at Google working on the open web focusing on payments and identity from Tokyo Japan.

As Payment Handler is becoming a good shape and being shipped on Chrome , I think it's good time to determine web payments' official logo. I heard there were efforts to create one in the past but didn't come to a conclusion.

I'd like to hear your opinion on
- if we should do it
- how we should do it

Luckily, Ian has already come up with set of expectations to the logo
https://github.com/w3c/webpayments/wiki/Brand

Let's follow that. And on top of what he suggested, I think:
- Web payments logo can represent this effort and it will be far easier for people to identify a payment solution is one of web payments even they have never seen it before.
- The logo can be a symbol across web, merchant and payment industries and will unite us together.

I'm thinking if we can use the logo for
- Generic payment button (launches Payment Request UI instead of specific payment app directly)
- A sticker on a technical documentation that means the technology is based on web payments

If there are enough interest, I'd like to determine how we should move things forward.
Let first tell us what you think.

Thanks.

P.S. There's a Web Payments slack and some of us have been discussing about this for sometime. Please feel free to join.
