The World Wide Web Consortium released a logo for the new HTML 5 standard. The purpose of doing this was to promote the new technology and their organization. The logo and variations of it can be found at the W3C HTML 5 Logo site.
The branding campaign from W3C is being done in hope that HTML5 will be widely used in not only creating web sites, but also desktop applications and streaming video. There are first person shooter games that have been ported to HTML5, so the possibilities of what can be accomplished are great.
It will be interesting to see how HTML5 competes against Flash and Silverlight.
