As Paul has said, there is a patch to include the Debian logo at boot. As 
far as I know, the kernel still displays the traditional penguin at boot if 
a framebuffer is used, but note that on recent systems framebuffer has been 
replaced by kms which is loaded a bit later in the boot process and doesn't 
display any logo (either tux or the swirl with the patch.)
