OK, I totally agree with the above discussion, but must it be an animal?
I'm open to any symbol that I think can be associated with Debian.
Imho it also includes abstract figures that don't really mean anything but
may give a certain feeling!

If we go for an animal I think we should go for one that associates to
freedom (as you pointed out: Debian is FREE) therefore an eagle is
good (it may be a bit American though?!?).
