The late Jim Irwin's Christian organization "High Flight" had a logo which I imagine is fairly well known in these circles. Amongst other places I have seen it on his business cards and once hand drawn by him after his signature. However it has always been in black and white.

I've noticed for a while now patches listed on eBay similar to this one:

Does anyone know if this color version has any basis in the reality of the High Flight organizational literature, offices, etc., or is it recent fantasy?

David, Jim Irwin's daughter runs a Facebook page under his name, she may know.

Thanks. I had a look at that page, and the foundation website, and the logo is black and white with the writing inside the orbits. I have seen a color business card, without the white "shine", also with the writing inside the orbits. I'm guessing this is an "inspired by" patch and unofficial. I'll ask the current lister.

I would just add, that in terms of "recent". I have a simliar patch, that I picked up back in 1996. Also color. So it has been around for a long while.
