So long Java EE, welcome Jakarta EE!

This logo will be used on printed flyers, websites, clothing, etc so treat it seriously — make sure it’s “clean, crisp and easily readable.” Furthermore, your design should make sense not only in monochrome but also in full color.

Color: No gradients. The designer can choose any color they’d like. Needs to work in full color, black on white, white on black and monochrome.
Orientation: please have a version of the logo with the wordmark on the right and well as one with the logo above the wordmark

Jakarta EE b-day
By the way, if you were wondering, Jakarta EE’s birthday is February 26 — for future celebrations.
