Again, what others have already said:  it is not the Debian swirl.  It is 
very likely that whoever created this swirl has not even heard about 

The Debian swirl was created with a few - apparently very obvious - steps in 
a popular graphics package (which one?), starting with a default brush 
stroke.  So anybody owning this particular graphics package can easily 
create a similar logo.  Both brush strokes and swirls are not that 

This was discussed in the past already.

Time for a more unique logo?  OTOH I quite like the swirl.  And then there 
are the tattooed people who probably would like the logo to stay the same 
for another few years...
