Logo #110: Black 47
Black 47's chained fist logo was designed by Larry Kirwan and Brian Mor in 1990. Mor: "I came up with the concept of the B47 logo and it was designed by Brian Mor who does a lot of murals in New York City. The idea was much like the Jewish slogan "Never Again. " The name of the band Black 47 (comes from) the greatest disaster in Irish history: the Great Hunger. The fist crashing through the chains is to symoblize that all peoples should refuse to accept injustice."
