He's probably talking about the default(?) WindowMaker background, which
is a red swirl on a greyish, textured background.

To answer the question: The swirl *is* our logo, the 'Open Use Logo' to
be precise. See http://www.debian.org/logos/index.html for more
information. The grey background is not part of any official Debian
logo, as far as I'm aware.

And sorry, I can't tell you about the meaning of the swirl :-/
