The creator of the brand X was humoured to have an addiction to flightless birds which led to the logo of X being one.
The name of this mascot/logo, Y, is attributed to the way it looks: like it’s wearing a Y.
The reason the creator chose to have this flightless bird as a logo was because it looked familiar: a slightly chonky being sitting down after a heavenly meal.
