<p>People, who know Asian style hieroglyphs, might be able to get by without
logos, but <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_script">Latin script</a>
and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrillic_script">Cyrillic script</a>
based words take up so much space that there is a practical need for some
hieroglyph like solution. Since I (Martin Vahi) do not know any East-Asian
languages, I tried to come up with something that</p>

<p></p>
<ul>
<li>fits to a square area, id est it fits well to buttons and checklists;</li>
<li>can be rendered recognizably in very small resolution;<br>
</li>
<li>is defined by a drawing algorithm;</li>
<li>does not have a strong historical meaning like the
<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika">Swastika</a> or the
<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_star">red star</a>;</li>
<li>can be drawn understandably by using only 2 colors;</li>
<li>(hopefully) does not have any connotations to classical religions;</li>
<li>(hopefully) does not have any sexual connotations;</li>
<li>(hopefully) does not have any classically derogatory connotations;</li>
<li>(hopefully) is meaningless in all East-Asian languages;</li>
<li>tries to reference the letters S and T from the compound word
"Silk-torrent";</li>
</ul>
