What's special about this logo is the colonel's face on it. He looks like a nice guy that knows fried chicken. We instantly give KFC a bigger credit of trust because we have a real person between the company and us.

This logo of the Astros baseball team from Houston is a creative blast! The designer masterfully played out the sports theme and star theme (astro means star in Greek).  It is a beautiful example of using the essence of a brand in a logo.
