I want to respect all image copyright holders and works made by numerous artists and authors. Without their work it would impossible to present the continuity of the FOL symbol by its various appearances in any satisfactory way. Most of the images has been published with Creative Commons license so it was straightforward to use those images on this essay. I have published all my own photos with the same license believing that it is the only way to keep creative work and research hassle free and enjoyable for everyone. Few items [32, 35] has untraceable sources, because they have been used internet widely without reference to the original work. I hope that someone who sees them here and knows the source will kindly contact me, so that I can attach credit line to the images. Then few items [5, 6, 25, 26, 36] has restricted terms of use why I cannot present pictures directly on my essay, so I have footnoted links to the original works.
