That's very cool. :-)
Trademark law is kinda weird though. Sometimes even if the image isn't
exactly the same, if it still conveys "the same idea", it counts. But
then, if you change the color, and orientation, and shading, or bend the
flap a little, or put a buckle on it, or any other little trivial tweak,
suddenly it's different enough and doesn't count.
